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!

6 October 2015 Journal Page

I had a great time teaching at Scrapbooking Forever yesterday. It's always nice to see some familiar faces as well as to meet some new ones! 

I've been reading 33 Artists in 3 Acts. It's always interesting seeing how other artists work and so far, the beginning part of the book is about trendy, Very Big Name, commercial artists who are more like factory artists (artists who delegate the actual labor to their staff.) I get really weird feelings about that. It's like having sand in your underwear kind of a feeling. I know Warhol and many others have worked that way but, honestly, what's the point of being an artist when you're working like a factory worker? I can't imagine not being the one to glue my work to the surface or brush the paint on or put pen to paper.
