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!

On The Road to Santa Fe

My mother and I are getting ready to leave early tomorrow morning for Santa Fe. I am teaching at Guadalupe's Fun Rubber Stamps on Friday. I'm really looking forward to it. I have taught there twice before and it is a great store.

On Thursday, Mom and I are taking the O'Keeffe tour in Abiquiu. I am very excited. I have been immersing myself in O'Keeffe lately and am eager to see the area.

Friday, I teach two classes. Whee! After class, we are headed to Albuquerque as my Mom booked a ride on a hot air balloon early Saturday morning. She is getting on it herself. I might be crazy but I am not that crazy! We will turn around and trek back home after that. 

I started the journal that you see here for my trip awhile back. This is my, "An Artist's Study" class where I combine my work with a favorite artist's, merging the two to create something new. Prior to this book, I have made one for Frida Kahlo. What you see here is the work in progress cover. It looked entirely different until last night. It will look different again the next time I take paint and marker to it.

I am eager to see what New Mexico and Georgia O'Keeffe have to teach me.
