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!

Jet Pens: New Pens!


As part of their sponsorship program, JetPens sent me a $25 gift certificate to play with. I knew what I wanted immediately. Here's what I ordered:


Platinum Carbon Desk Fountain Pen - Super Fine + 1 Carbon Ink Cartridge
Platinum Carbon Pen Ink Cartridge - Pack of 4 - Black
Sakura Pigma Professional Brush Pen - Bold - Black
Sakura Pigma Professional Brush Pen - Fine - Black
Kuretake Disposable Pocket Brush Pen - Ex

I've played with all of the above pens and hands down, my favorite is the Platinum Carbon Desk Fountain Pen - Super Fine. It almost reminds me of my beloved .35 Rapidosketch but in fountain pen form. It's smooth as it glides across paper, magazine pages, (dried) painted pages, and even washi tape! I'll be playing with this one for awhile. The cartridges are inexpensive and easy to pop in. It's definitely a keeper and my favorite new (to me) pen.

I also liked both of the

The Kuretake Disposable Pocket Brush Pen - Extra Fine is also nice. I like the extra fine tip. Like the pens above, it writes great on dried paint but not so well on tape.
