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!

more recent pages...and Barron Storey

Make sure you run on over to The Altered Page and check out his post on Barron Storey's exhibit in NYC. It is AMAZING. THANK YOU, Seth!

I've blogged about Barron many times. You can see some pictures here and here. Yeah, I'm a dorky fan girl but I'll proudly admit it. I pick up books and publications with his work in them. His books are in my top 10 favorites-EVER. They are treasures that should be on every artist's shelves.

You can still get copies of Life After Black at cover price. Do NOT buy it on amazon. They want an insane amount of $ for it. Go here. Those of you in NY, can pick it up at the gallery.

Carl also has voiced plans to reprint Storey's Marat/Sade Journals.

You can find Storey's work in Sandman: Endless Nights.

I'm very excited about Art Revolution, which comes out at the end of July. It features Storey's work among many others. It is very high on my want wish list.

In the meantime, you can still get copies of various Storey publications through Vanguard. I would strongly recommend picking up copies of The Edge and Watch 1996.

For those of you in L.A.,

July 9–August 15 2009

Barron's website here and blog here.

If you like Barron Storey you should also check out David Mack, Dave McKean, Bill Koeb, Kent Williams, Greg Spalenka, John Copeland, Bill Sienkiewicz, James Jean, David Choe and David Choong Lee to name a few.
Many were students of Storey, as was the wonderful and talented, Juliana Coles.

Bill Koeb (whose work I also adore) has signed copies of his Rememory book here on etsy.

Finally, I'm not a stalker. I just know what I like and I like damn good art! I also like to know WHO CREATED the art that I like. It's maddening to me that so many people don't know artist names and who created art that they enjoy. C'mon folks, get off your keisters and learn about your favorite artists. ;)

A Deep Bow to you, Mistress of Books.
I had given up on the Storey Book seeing the top-heavy Amazon price and you've saved me.
Also, a John Copeland and Julianna Coles fan, I'll be checking out every unfamiliar name that you've dropped.
Keep dropping!
Thanks again. This Blog is a fabulous resource and inspiration!

Oh Kelly brilliant that you are...Thanks for helping us 'know' more about our favs and know about other brilliant artists that we have never heard of untill you came along..thanks for stalking..I appreciate a good stalk..:D
I see that you are very attached to pink..I am to reds and yellows and all the inbetweens....sometimes I decide: 'today I will explore other color families'..it never ever works!!!! What do you think?

Thanks Orly! I've been trying to keep this journal I'm working in now going in a 'pink' theme. I don't know how much longer I will hold out...my paint brush is itching for other colors. BUT I want to TRY to keep it going!!
