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!

On My Shelf


Trying to figure out what to bring with me this weekend for distraction. Leaning towards the Van Gogh books. I started reading The Yellow House about Gauguin and Van Gogh's relationship. It has sucked me in. It begins with how each artist sent a self portrait to the other as a way of getting to know each other. I love that idea. Can you imagine creating personal pieces of art to swap with potential friends as a means of introducing oneself? Art that is supposed to represent you in the way that you see yourself and how you want others to see you?

Sounds like an intriguing idea...

My first reaction was "Cool! What a great idea!" My second reaction was "Terrible idea. Can't imagine trying to create something I could send as an introduction that would represent me."Upon further thought I realize that is a wimpy way out.... I will be thinking about this possible project....
