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!

What I'm Reading: Frida Kahlo and Wim Wenders


I'm spending my weekend in Frida Kahlo's Garden and deep in conversation with Wim Wenders.

I wish. Thankful for the books that allow our minds to wander and dream.

Very happy that David found our copy of, "Wim Wenders: On Film." I had Wenders sign it when we met him at Book Soup (that was a dream come true!) Wenders asked me if I had read it and I was embarrassed when I had to answer no. When we got home, the book was put in a "safe place" and thankfully, David found it the other day! I've already read several chapters and am having a hard time putting it down.

I think of the many people we've met over the years and Wenders always stands out. He had a genuine interest in talking to us and I will always appreciate him for that (not to mention his many films and books.) 

I'm excited to visit New York City this summer. I'll only be there for a day but I can't wait to see the Frida exhibit at the Botanical Gardens. My morning and afternoon will be spent there and in the evening, I'll be at The Ink Pad. Definitely an ideal day.
