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!

Here's a sampling of mine. My favorite, hands down, is Learning By Heart by Corita Kent and Jan Steward.

Traci Bautista's first book: Collage Unleashed (eye candy, happiness responses inside, easy creativity-jump starter projects)

Gwen Diehn: all of her books

audio CD: Creative Fire, Clarissa Pinkola Estes (actually, any of her audio CDs are fabulous);

photography book called Newport Remembered for inspiration, like mental palette cleansing;

but mainly to stir my own creativity, I read about anything BUT what I do in/about my journaling. latest fascination is textile design.

this is more about what inspires my creativity; Cameron's The Artist's Way still gets my chops flowing and kicks my heinie like no other when it comes to creativity itself, the act, the nerve, the practice.
