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!

20th and 21st January 2016 Journal Pages

I'm going to be posting my revised workshop schedule for the rest of 2016 over the course of the next week here. Thanks for being patient and tuning in. We're still trying to get back to whatever normal was around here. Tristan has been in school for a week now (he loves it. Thankfully, he was able to enroll in several classes that he was really interested in taking.) David still has lots of doctor appointments, the car is still in the shop and there is always something on the calendar that we need to make the time to do. 

I've been reading a lot more artist biographies this year. I will post my favorites here and there over the next few weeks. I'm always open to suggestions on books and films.

Here's a list of some art documentaries that I have not seen yet but am looking forward to doing so:

Louise Bourgeois: The Spider, the Mistress and the Tangerine

Humble Beauty: Skid Row Artists

Rude Dude

Paris Was a Woman

Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present

Have you seen any of these? Do you have any favorite art documentaries that you'd like to share?

You probably have seen this, but maybe others have not. The Rape of Europa- I watched it years ago on PBS and it has been on Netflix for years- still available! "chronicles 12 years of Nazi pillaging works of art throughout Europe and the international effort to locate these treasures" The part that amazed me was what they did to save works of art- I have been to the Louvre and I can't begin to imagine emptying it out. Discussed what they did to protect and hide the Mona Lisa and moving a huge Statue etc. Amazing! Also a little about Hitler, I did not know he was an artist and wanted to attend Art school but was rejected. I could not stop wondering what would have happened it he had been accept.....

I have noticed that your style seems to have evolved into using more paint. I know you have been doing this awhile, I do not know when this change started though :) I am wondering if you paint your pages first or are you adding after collage, or even during?? I have taken a few of your older online classes, I would love if you made newer versions! I bet you would have many students! Thanks for sharing
