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


http://www.amazon.com/Print-Pattern-Geometric-Bowie-Style/dp/1780674147/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1428640288&sr=1-1&keywords=print+and+pattern


It's not a secret that I love books. I'll buy books before clothes, food, even art supplies. I'll count pennies if I even have to. I treasure my library and am thankful to have amassed a small collection of my favorites.

I spotted several new books this week. I don't have all of the above but I did pick up the first two titles (between my favorite bookstore, Iliad Books in North Hollywood and Barnes and Noble online.) The two below have been added to my wishlist.

I'm eagerly awaiting the publication of this book:

 

While researching the above books, I also found a few more to add to my wishlist (note that my wishlist doesn't always mean that I actually *want* the book. Sometimes I use it as a reminder to look at the books when I'm out and about.)

I've been reading Judy Chicago's "Through the Flower: My Struggle as a Woman Artist" which is the first volume of her autobiography. She's just a year older than me so I've enjoyed being reminded of and learning more about the explosion of feminism in the early 1970's plus being fascinated by her insights about being a serious and intellectual woman artist. I love this book and have barely put it down since I started it. PeggySu
