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 more than twenty years. 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!

30 August 2013 Journal Page

I've got a busy weekend ahead teaching at Banana Rose in Westlake Village on Saturday and Word is Art in Los Angeles on Sunday.  

I'm spending today prepping everything for this weekend so I decided to extend my artists' book sign-up sale through Monday morning at 7 a.m. PST. Those of you who sign up for it before Monday, will receive the special sale price AND a special limited edition signed and numbered print. I'm taking the book to the printers Monday afternoon. I'm so excited!!!!!!

David and I went to a limited engagement screening of Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises yesterday. I LOVED it. It will be in a wider release in 2014 and I encourage folks to check it out. I can't recommend this film enough. I really, really hope it wins the Oscar next year. I love Studio Ghibli and this was a brilliant send off for an outstanding director whose work will be very much missed. If you want to see some of his films right now, seek out two of my personal favorites, My Neighbor Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service (I recommend the subtitled versions *not* the dubbed ones.)

Have a wonderful weekend, folks.

Never the dubbed version, of anything, is my thinking. Did you like SPIRITED AWAY, apropos of, well, an animated work like KIKI'S DELIVERY SERVICE? Wishing you happy, successful classes this weekend. xo
