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!

An Artist's Study and An Update

I've been eager to share this book with you since I started it in September of last year. I'll be sharing the pages here over the new few weeks. My idea was to take the work of one of my favorite artists and combine it with my own, making all new original work. I love the idea of the artist peeking in on the work on this first page. It's not a great page but it fits. 

An update on David, his surgery is next week. It's an exploratory procedure to try to see what is going on. I'm trying not to worry too much but that's easier said than done. In the meantime, both David and I are sick so I'm hoping that we're both better before he has the surgery (because I don't know what will happen if he's still sick.) Thanks for all of the kind words and thoughts. They are very much appreciated. 

I posted a video of the little books that I've been working on. I hope to have them posted soon. You can see them here.
