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!

The Spirit of the Beehive


"I told you he was a spirit. If you're his friend, you can talk to him whenever you want. Just close your eyes and call him... It's me, Ana... It's me Ana..."

The other day, David and I saw The Spirit of the Beehive at LACMA. David had seen it many years ago and I had been waiting to see it on the big screen. It did not disappoint. It is the kind of film (at least for me) that will stay with me.

The last few years (thanks to my husband) I have shunned reading reviews, descriptions and anything about a film before heading into seeing it. I look at who directed it. I listen to what others have to say about a film and, if I trust their judgment and taste, I will make note of it. I've left out some "spoiler" shots from this film just in case you are thinking along the same lines. If you ever get a chance to see it on the big screen in 35mm, I'd highly recommend it.

"Soy Ana."
