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

Louise Bourgeois 

 “The spider is a repairer. If you bash into the web of a spider, she doesn’t get mad. She weaves and repairs it.”
― Louise Bourgeois

I started reading Louise Bourgeois Destruction of the Father / Reconstruction of the Father: Writings and Interviews, 1923-1997 last night. It's pulled me in. Lisa Congdon recommended it somewhere (I can't remember if it was her Instagram page or her blog.) Maybe it was Brainpickings that recommended it and I saw Lisa's art of Louise. Anyways, I'm reading it now. I'm not the only one who recommends it (lots of lovely photos of the inside of the book can be found here.)

 “It is not so much where my motivation comes from but rather how it manages to survive.”
― Louise Bourgeois
