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!

21 September 2010 journal page

(The chart behind the hands was made for me by Krista Jarrad. Isn't it cool?!?!)

Just a little reminder, I'll be teaching in Fremont, CA October 22nd-24th. Please pass it on! More info here. Yes, it is the weekend where I turn 36 and I want to spend it in No Ca with my students! (You guys know how much I LOVE to teach!) I'm teaching two workshops on Friday the 22nd and on the 23rd and 24th, I'll be teaching my very popular (and one of my personal favorites), my two day workshop called Rejuvenations. (Catch the workshops while you can. I teach them once in a location and I don't repeat!)

Think book/journal making.

Think collage (think LOTS and LOTS of collage).

Think Pens (I'll have a few...*laughs*).

Think Tape (ok, think lots and lots of tape).

Think Rubber Stamps and ink (I have lots of new ones to share!)

Think Composition, Design, Layout, Texture.

Think of Gaining Artistic Confidence.

Think of walking out of the workshops not only with your head full of new ideas, but with journals made and completed pages!

Think of how exciting it is when you take a workshop that generates new ideas and new ways of looking at things!

Then think beyond all of that because I have the classes PACKED with info. I'll have tons and tons of new ideas, tips, tricks and techniques up my sleeves to share with you. I won't hold anything back! You guys are in for one sticky, gluey, paper covered fingers, I mean, one big art filled weekend. And remember, I don't travel light! :)
