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!

Seeing


I am full of love and gratitude. Thank you to everyone who has ordered or passed along links for my latest self published book, Authenticity. I appreciate it. My family and I appreciate YOU. 

It is a busy week in the Kilmer household. I am prepping for my workshops this weekend in San Diego and Los Angeles. I am also starting to put the finishing touches on some journals that I will be posting in the next few weeks. Tristan is attending his first CTN expo this weekend and he is excited. He will be there representing his school. 

I finished two books this week, Night Studio about Philip Guston and A Suite for Barbara Loden, two very different books and yet two books about artists. I enjoyed both very much. I just started reading James Stephens' A Crock of Gold late last night. David gave it to me a long time ago and here I am, making a dent in my To Read Pile.

The page above is one that I started last night. When I can't finish a page, I like to leave my journal open. This way, every time I walk by it, I look at it and try to think about what it needs, what works and what doesn't. This way of working has really helped me the last couple of years. I love being able to process my pages as if they were works on canvas, works for all to see.

Hi Kelly,
I just recently found your blog and I look forward to learning more about your art!
I have just started making journals, and I love new ideas.
I also LOVE your last paragraph and how you work and create as a painting/artist~
Thank you! Cathy
