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!

WIP, an Audiobook and the Work of Lenore Tawney

I've been listening to this audiobook "Identity Unknown: Rediscovering Seven American Women Artists (Unabridged)" by Donna Seaman while I work the past couple of weeks. It's the kind of book that you need to listen to more than once to make sure that you didn't miss any of the juicy bits. I'm on the chapter about one of my favorite artists, Lenore Tawney. 

I still remember the day when I saw her little book, Signs on the Wind, collaged postcards.  Right then and there, she became one of my favorite artists. I sought out her work in book form as much as possible. I'm enjoying the bit on her in the Identity Unknown book. Tawney is the main reason I bought the book in the first place.

Here are just a few of my favorites of Lenore Tawney's collage work:
