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!

On My Shelf

I've been reading The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop off and on for the past couple of weeks. As a bibliophile, I'm finding that it is an interesting read. The author weaves the tale of his life as a book lover with the history of books. If you love books as much as I do, you might want to check it out at your local library. Lewis Buzbee even has an extensive list of his favorite bookstores here.

I picked up an inexpensive, used copy of Dali by Dali last week at Iliad (my favorite bookstore.) Had I known that there is a larger, more extensive book with the exact same material, I would've picked that up instead but this I am enjoying this small copy of Dali artwork. 

Last night at Barnes and Noble, with an additional 20% off coupon in hand (along with the 30% off the list price) I finally succumbed to buying Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic. I haven't cracked it open yet but I hope to do so later on this evening. I know so many people who have sung its praises. Time will tell if I'll be adding my own voice to that chorus.

(Update on 10/24: I ended up returning Big Magic. I read half of it and then started skimming the rest.)
