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!

Bringing Home the Goods: Arizona

Had great groups of people in all of my classes this weekend. Big time thanks to everyone who came out for the classes.

I did a little shopping while I was in town. The loot above is from The Occasional Artist. Folks think that because I live in Los Angeles, I have access to a ton of supplies. It's been several years since we lost our stores. Sure, I have Dick Blick, Nova Paint and Graphaids which are wonderful when I need to buy supplies for classes but when I need stencils, tape, stamps, paper, rub-ons, etc... I don't have any local options. When I know I'm going somewhere to teach, I start saving my pennies. This is why I manage to do damage when I trek to AZ, NY, Northern CA, MA, NM, CO, etc... Sadly, I can't get this stuff at home any more.

Fabulous haul! We're so lucky in Colorado Springs to have Blue Twig Studio - dangerous territory. I'm sorry you have to travel so far for the extra goodies. Shipping's a hard price to pay, too.

A lovely reward for your hard work teaching!
