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!

Quiet Solitude

Lying on my Mother's couch looking at the grey and white landscape of swirling snow outside. Quiet. Alone. I could still be sleeping but here I am enjoying a quiet that I have not heard in a very long time.

"Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it."

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I go away for a couple of days and in my absence you have created such wonderful pages.

The layout and the sentiments are just so beautiful. They really 'hit' all the right spots. I have never had the pleasure of having a mother's couch to lie on - nor even having a mother for that matter. Even as an old lady there are times, such as your moving post, when I truly am envious, and can evoke the 'feeling' through your work.
