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!

What I'm Reading

I've been digging through my personal shelves and reading (and in the case of Corita Kent re-reading) some of my favorite books on creativity and art making.

I love this quote from Corita, "We have no art. We do everything as well as we can." I think that's a good motto to live by. It leaves the judgment and labels off of something and encourages us to focus on creating and creating well. 

I am hoping to weave some of the things that I've gleaned from these books into my classes over the next few months.


In David news, he had his kidney stent removed. He's going to have another ctscan as well as a stress test on his heart within the next week. His urologist is still fighting for the second opinion that he wants David to have and we appreciate that. David is feeling better and we have gone out a few times to our favorite haunts (nothing he has to stand for or walk around too long at.) He is anemic right now and because he's also lost a lot of hemoglobin, he tires easily. We are trying to keep everything balanced but it is still difficult to get everything done in a day. We really appreciate the love and support.

Good to hear that you and David are able to get out some. Even brief changes in a routine can lift your spirits.
