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 more than twenty years. 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!

My Door of Inspiration

When I can afford it, I buy original art. Since I won't be buying originals from any of these artists anytime soon, postcards work rather nicely. I pick up these mini paper canvases when I go to an exhibit. It's a nice reminder of the moment. I started a couple of years ago with Mary Blair but the collection has grown to include Frida Kahlo, Yuri Norstein, Francesca Yarbusova, JMW Turner, Vincent Van Gogh, Corita Kent and Salvador Dali. 

Not pictured but another wall holds Marc Davis from the Disney Museum. My kitchen walls and cabinet doors (both inside and out) include work by my son, Tristan, Juliana Coles, Lynne Hoppe, Roseann Cazares, Suki Moon Pie along with several others. 

I also started collecting magnets from the exhibits that I visit as well. I love filling my little home with art as much as possible.
