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!

1 November 2015 Journal Page

I was up late last night making art and reading Georgia. I was trying to stay awake for a short documentary on the making of Vincente Minelli's Lust for Life (about Van Gogh.) Alas, I didn't make it but I figured out how to work my sister's Tivo and recorded it. I love behind the scenes bits, photos and stories about film. I'm starting my day with it. It's an interesting documentary watching them remake the world according to how Vincent saw it.

Art is about remaking our world, bringing to life what we see and transforming it with color, line and shape. Taking bits and bobs of what delights us and molding it into something else. I'm always grateful to be able to sit down with my scissors, glue and markers and see what unfolds onto my pages.

Headed to New York tomorrow. I'll be dropping Tristan off at his Grandfather's for the weekend. Then my mom, sister, the kids and I will head into New York City. I'm looking forward to teaching at The Ink Pad. David has given me a short list for The Strand. I'm hoping to find something to surprise him. Looking forward to the weekend.
