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!

"Art is a form of consciousness." Susan Sontag

One of the things that I am doing this year is Ali Edwards' "One Little Word." I'm not sure how I am going to do it yet (still processing it) but it's the first year that it's ever hit and and that a word has popped into my head. My word for 2014? Connect.

con•nect (kəˈnɛkt)

  •  to join, link, or fasten together; unite.
  •  to have as an accompanying or associated feature.
  • to cause to be associated in a relationship.
  • to associate mentally or emotionally.
  • to become connected; join or unite.
  • to establish a sympathetic or harmonious relationship.
  • Informal. to meet or establish communication; make contact.

Some Bits of Housekeeping:

I'm spending the next few days prepping for my classes in Massachusetts at the end of the month

My online classes are on sale (buy one, get a second class of equal or lesser value free) through Sunday (I will not be offering this again any time soon, if ever.

I still have a few hand bound copies of my self published book, Pieces of Me, available here

As always, thanks for reading this and being interested in my work. It is very much appreciated.
