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!

journal page from April 21, 2009

I painted over her hair in a couple of colors. I didn't like it 100% so I used watersoluble crayons and graphite crayons. I still didn't like it, so the other night, I added the spirals to it using a waterbased white Sharpie poster paint pen.
I had a great weekend teaching at Artful Living in Ojai and at The Art Bar!!! Thanks to both sets of students-you guys rocked!!!!!

I did a similar page last summer and I too used a butterfly over a girl's mouth signifying the right to speak your mind. You may not like what you hear...but it IS MY OPINION!!!! I'll have to scan the page and send you a copy. I did the page in the book you made me last summer at Ink About It.
