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!

11 October 2015 Journal Page

I finished Sarah Thornton's 33 Artists in 3 Acts last night. All in all, it was an okay read, definitely a library book as it's not one that you really need taking up precious personal library space. There are some very good reviews over on Goodreads about it that pretty much sum it up. My favorite gems that made it worth reading were:

"Humans make images to hold onto what they love and what they are about to lose." -Massimiliano Gioni

 "'Remember me' is what all artists whisper in their work. It's a mark you want to leave in the world. It is still you even when you're not you anymore. If my work has brought me love, that's what it means. If not, it has failed me at the deepest level. So remember me."-a partial quote from Ross Bleckner related by Andrea Fraser

"I'm not unique. I'm just a particular instance of the possible."-Andrea Fraser
