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!

Bringing Home the Goods: Queens Ink in Savage, MD


I had a great time teaching at The Queen's Ink in Savage, Maryland! Patti and the Gang always make me feel at home. Patti always finds cool goodies for the shop. She ordered a bunch of things for my classes but not everything had arrived on time so, check back. We played with some of the above goodies during the classes (well, not the drink holder. That would have been weird. I'm always looking for a good cozy and the money for this goes to a good cause.)

My favorite thing from above are the Artgraf, water soluble graphite. I've used graphite over the years but have never used anything as intense as these. I have the tins, the sticks, the pencils and the bars. I love them and what they do on top of acrylics.

I'm in Massachusetts now at my sister's house hanging out with my little niece and nephew. On Thursday, I'll trek to The Ink Pad in NYC for classes there Thursday and Friday night. Saturday, I'll be back in Massachusetts to teach in Easton. On the 20th, Mom and I will start to trek West. On the way, I'll be teaching in Wisconsin and Illinois for the first time ever. I am always looking for new venues (and thankful to return to old favorites.)

If you ordered a handwritten postcard, I dropped the first batch in the mail from Maryland this weekend. I'm going to head to the MFA Boston this week and will be picking more up from there. I'm also going to work on my Art journal pages over the next couple of days to mail those out.

Off to play with the little ones today! I love road trips but it is very nice to be out of the car.

I would love to know how you like the Dina Wakley Media Scribble Sticks. Do they compare with Neocolor II crayons? Hope you post a review soon.
