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!

Last year, over the holidays, I met up with my friend Roseann Cazares who created the two page spread that you see below in my journal. I love her work and was honored that she wanted to work in my book:

Apologies for not blogging sooner. I arrived home late Monday night from a wonderful weekend of teaching in Colorado. I came home to Lots of Stuff To Do. This past week has been a bit of a blur. It looks like our health insurance is finally straightened out (so thankful about that.) No word on our (only) car yet, unfortunately (and I am trying not to stress about that but it is quite difficult especially with Tristan's school starting soon.)

As far as my teaching schedule goes, I will be posting my teaching schedule within the next week with my upcoming classes in Los Angeles, San Diego, Northern California, New Mexico and Arizona. I am eager to get back into a routine especially since Tristan starts school soon. I have developed a few new classes that I am very excited about.

I have been wanting to share my new favorite Instagram account, Jennifer Higgie's page. I love what she is posting, photos and short bios of inspiring women artists. You don't need an Instagram account, just click the link and click the photos to read more about the artists. With over 1,500 photos, there are lots of links!

So glad that things seem to be taking a turn for the better! Good luck with upcoming classes. I'm sure that your new classes will be amazing! It's great that you are always moving forward and enhancing what you do so well.

Getting back into a "normal" routine after being away from home is challenging. Hope your car is back in service soon! TFS!
