What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for almost twenty years now. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

Very Yummy Books

There's nothing better than being excited about a new book, holding that book in your hands and seeing how really good it is. So good that you could lick the pages. Almost. 

I've sang the praises of all of the Uppercase publications over the years. I adore their Work/Life compilations. When they arrive, I like to slowly savor them (as opposed to devour them.) I love reading the artist's thoughts as well as seeing photos of their artwork, studio bits and inspiration. I will be looking at this for a long time. Make sure that you check out their blog for more bits into the book!

Freehand arrived and I was shocked at how small it is! It's very cute (size wise.) It's full of ideas for drawing, composition and more. So far, I'm just enjoying looking at all of the artwork. Gorgeous. Inspiring.

I started reading Chaplin: My Autobiography last night. I had a hard time putting it down. It's a fascinating read.

What art books are you looking forward to?

Just finished up Out of Oz by Gregory Maguire, the last book in the Wicked series. I really enjoyed the view from the dark side of Oz. Currently reading The Interestings by Meg Woliitzer and looking forward to Caveat emptor : the secret life of an American art forger (I can't remember the authors name).
