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!

David Bowie



“I suppose for me as an artist it wasn’t always just about expressing my work; I really wanted, more than anything else, to contribute in some way to the culture I was living in.”

Because I am who I am, and this post wouldn't be complete without it, here are two of David Bowie's reading lists here and here. If you need a smile, read this.

"I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human. I felt very puny as a human. I thought, "Fuck that. I want to be a superhuman."

David Bowie was my time and my age. I can relate to all of the individual singers and groups in that time period. He knew what made money and he did it his way.
A lot of British singers did it "their way" and changed the world.
Have you read Patti Smith's book Just Kids? She has a newer book out but, the review were just OK. It is a very interesting American time period tale of her life.

I still can't believe that he is gone! I was so lucky to see the exhibition " David Bowie is" at the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2013. I loved seeing that reading list there!
