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!

September 7, 2009 journal page

I had a GREAT time teaching at Art On A Lark yesterday!!!! It's an amazing space FILLED with not only the most amazing studio space I've seen, but also tons of fun mixed media goodies. Wonderful hostesses and amazing students. Day 2 is today and I'm looking forward to it!!!!!

One funny thing, at the hotel are staying at, Tristan and my Mom were in the pool yesterday. A little boy about the same age as Tristan got into the pool with them. Neither Tristan nor the boy said anything to each other. Before the boy left the pool, he turned to Tristan and made Star Trek's Spock "Live Long and Prosper" hand greeting. Tristan smiled and did it back to him. THAT IS IT! That's all the two kids "said" to each other. My Mom didn't understand it but Tristan did. Unspoken words. How cool was that? I'm still floored by it and crack up every time I think about it.

Someone asked what I picked up at Powells. I bought several zines and two art books-

Just For You (Designs From The Heart)

and Joanna Rubin Dranger's What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger

I also have to direct you here, to one of, if not THE coolest aprons I have ever seen.

Thanks for answering my question about prepping pages, Kelly. Here's another one- what are you favorite books or journals to work in? Thanks!

LOVE the Spock story, and I get it. It would be great if they cross paths again today. They could have amazing fun together.
And thanks for the love on the apron!

The pool incident is pretty cool!
It's nice when you come across someone who speaks your language
