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!

The Unknown


On the advice of a few of my students (thank you) I picked up Natalie Goldberg's The Great Spring. I read the book in a day. I can't remember who told me that the memoir part of the book was their favorite part but I would have to agree. The chapter that made the entire book worth reading for me was on David Park and Richard Diebenkorn. The chapter talks about how to introduce people to the unknown. I loved every word of it. It is a chapter that I will revisit again. Soon.

I LOVE Natalie Goldberg! I have 2 ( or maybe 3) copies of Writing Down the Bones - and use her writing prompts often. I haven't read this one yet though! Thanks for the heads up Kelly :)
