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!

Father Berrigan's actions and words had a strong impact on Corita and her art: "As Corita’s political activism grew, her art began to feature psychedelic colors and more strident messages. She later gave Daniel Berrigan, S.J., the peace activist, credit as a source of her powerful activist art of the mid- to late-1960s. “I suppose people like Dan had a lot to do with it because he was the first one I had ever heard speaking about the Vietnam War…. And I think living with people who were socially conscious helped a lot. I’m sure if I had been a nice proper housewife, I would not have bumped into all of these ideas,” she said in an interview in 1977 for an oral history project at the University of California. Her 1969 serigraph “phil and dan” features a news photo of the Berrigan brothers burning draft cards, in fluorescent orange. It is striking, engaging and challenging to the viewer, perhaps requiring a greater response than her earlier serigraphs."
