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!

Breaking Open: A Precious Journey

I started this journal on March 22nd. I wanted to construct the book in a different way so I've done something a bit unconventional, creating two covers for the journal. I don't know why I felt compelled to try it but here it is and I'm loving every second of it. There's something special about pulling back not one but two covers to work on the pages.

I've been taking the opportunity to use all of my large images that I've been hoarding, I mean saving.With the exception of the inside cover and first page, I've been working across the fold of the page, creating a two page spread. Pushing and pulling on my pages as I work. I hope that you'll enjoy seeing them as I share them on the blog.
