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!

4 June 2014 Journal Page

This isn't the blog post that I sat down to write. It is what has been on my mind though.

I have ranted, raged and raved on this blog over the years. It's been a heavy week all over the world for a lot of people. I've had lots on my mind the past few days. Book and film quotes often pop into my head when I least expect it. This morning I remembered the wise words of a great philosopher who one said, "Be excellent to each other."
Why is it so damn hard for all of us to do that? 

“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.”-Helen Keller
