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!

New Books Added to My Wishlist

http://www.amazon.com/Collage-Makers-Josep-Minguet/dp/8415829795

I have no idea what this is since you can't really see inside of it but it looks VERY cool.  


Two words: Maira Kalman. Want. More books coming out this year: Beloved Dog and Keepsakes: A Design Memoir.

Because I clearly don't have enough of Van Gogh's Letters already on my shelf. This one is gorgeous.

Artists journals. Had this on my wishlist since it was announced. It's not just because my stuff is in it. I love looking at journals, diaries and other peoples' books. Call me nosy or an artist.

 http://www.amazon.com/dp/1887123695/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=9BBCZS7PUIPI&coliid=I2MPZRQILGK9GD

I can't get enough of book arts.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/0962637254/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=9BBCZS7PUIPI&coliid=IH6O1S47RZAD1

Book Arts and Interviews with Artists? Need.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/8415829280/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=9BBCZS7PUIPI&coliid=I1FNQ3ZN5RGVVQ

The world needs more books on collage. At least my bookshelves do.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/1555977030/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=9BBCZS7PUIPI&coliid=IKNLCX4U0XE0I

The title sucked me in but then I looked up the author and had to add this to my wishlist.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/1616891688/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=9BBCZS7PUIPI&coliid=I2TARZIDLL1PIS

I don't know if I necessarily need this but I really want to see it. I love looking at sketchbooks and what I've seen of the pages, I find it intriguing.

What books am I missing?
