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!

7 February 2012 Journal Page

Some folks think that you "know it all" as an artist. No one knows everything. That said, as an instructor, I do my damndest to make sure that I know my materials and information 100% yet at the same time, I am always growing and changing as an artist (and instructor.) I am always trying to explore the endless artistic possibilities that are out there. I know my materials inside out. I have learned how to use them safely and I know what they can and can not do. Yet I do not know everything that I am fully capable of doing with the materials in my own hands. One week, I may have one way of using an art supply and the next, I am taking them in an entirely new direction. That's the beauty of an art journal. You can explore a myriad of ideas and possibilities and see how far you can push yourself!


A quick heads up that I'm teaching not one but TWO classes this weekend at Zinnia in So Pasadena as well as at Stampin from the Heart in L.A. More class info here. As far as I know, both classes are a go so please don't wait to long to sign up if you're interested. I'll have my April-June schedule up sometime this week.
