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!

The above books are listed in no particular order. My only criteria for a book to be included on this list was that it was bought in 2013 (not published in 2013.) Also, I prefer to buy books in hardcover as much as possible (if they are available and affordable) so I've linked to the exact editions that I purchased. There may be other editions available. 

Please note that just because a book is listed for sale on amazon at X price doesn't mean that it's not available elsewhere for a much more affordable price. I bought most of these books either on sale or used at my local bookstore. I don't always trust amazon prices (check abebooks as they are usually more reliable.) That said, always keep your eyes open as you can find gems at affordable prices at your local used bookstore, independent bookstore (some have sales), library sales, thrift stores, etc...
