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!

A Look Back At: Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent June 14, 2015–November 1, 2015

Right before my birthday, David and I went to the Pasadena Museum of California Art to see Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent. Corita has been a very big influence on my art and my teaching (Her book, Learning By Heart, is my number one recommended art book.) The exhibit was a visual inspiration of color, pattern, texture, line and ideas. Revisiting the photos makes me want to shut off the computer and dive into my journal. 

Above are just some of my favorite pieces from the show. It was hard to limit what I shared so, I've made a slideshow of the entire exhibit that you can see here.

If you are in or near Southern California, you may want to visit the Corita Art Center in Hollywood.

A previous photo heavy post about Corita Kent can be found here.
