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!

Trekking to New Mexico: Art Classes, O'Keeffe and Santa Fe

My Mom is coming with me and we are already planning our adventures. We will be going to Georgia O'Keeffe's home in Abiquiu on Thursday. 

I've been reading the above books, Georgia O'Keeffe and New Mexico A Sense of Place, Georgia O'Keeffe in New Mexico, Georgia O'Keeffe and Her Houses and Becoming O'Keeffe: The Early Years trying to get a sense of the area and the artist. I'm going back and forth between Becoming O'Keeffe and Roxana Robinson's Georgia O'Keeffe: A Life (said to be the best bio on O'Keeffe.)

If you've been and have any tips on the area as well as Santa Fe, I'd greatly appreciate it. I will be teaching all day Friday and Saturday and most of the day on Sunday but I will have time to explore on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday. I am really looking forward to my time there.
