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!

1 July 2015 Journal Page




I've been on the go busy with my Mom as  visits. Trying to glean bits of art time as much as I can. I never make art out of pressure but I do feel a need and a pull to create and make things. Art doesn't rule my life but it does shape it and is very much a part of my every being. 

I am reminded of artists like Matisse and Kurosawa who turned to other art forms when they lost their sight. The passion to create is the equivalent of breathing to some. They can't imagine a life without it. I can't imagine life without it.
