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!

Prep Work for France


I've been immersing myself in all things French for the past few months as I prepare for my workshop and trip there in June 2019. 

French films. (Watching Eric Rohmer at the moment.)

French music.

(Serge Gainsbourg and Michel Legrand are in rotation on my playlists.)


Studying the French language (using Duolingo so far.)

Reading whatever I can get my hands on about France. I've been reading John Baxter and Rick Steves

I made the used and indie bookstore rounds the last week and picked up two books:



Do you have any recommendations or ideas for a trip of a lifetime, my first time visiting France? (David is especially looking for recommendations of bookstores to find rare and out of print film books. I am studying my piles of Van Gogh books as I prepare to walk in his footsteps...)
