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!

More Journal Evolution


The medium size journal is from 2003. The large one is from 2005. The small one is 2009. A history of paint, collage, journaling, and just simple self expression. I used more paint back then and I liked to stick three dimensional stuff on the pages in the early 2000's. 

I wrote in my journal the other day that I'm right where I need to be. I have never felt more fulfilled with my art making than I have since I took up collage (my passion has grown even deeper over the years.) I have often said that while I am an experienced teacher, at the same time I am still a student. There is always something new to learn. I'm still finding my place with collage (as well as myself) and I am eager to see how far I can push it.

Because of your recent posts, I have now gone back through my history of journaling - about 5 years. I too have evolved. I did my first art journal with you and was so compelled by the journey I filled in every page!! Now, I find that my pages are more open and my thoughts are more on the surface than ever. Now that I am actually writing in my journal, my work has really changed. I am so grateful for the opportunities that my art has provided. I love the fact that even after 5 years, there is always something new to learn. Your blog and classes are my window into what is new and how to change and how to allow myself evolve.
