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!

12 January 2013 Journal Page

I try to keep my social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) posts separate from my blog posts but this is something I wrote last night on Facebook that I have to repeat here because I really and truly mean every word. As the page above says, I always speak my truth.

Always extremely thankful for my students (both in person and online.) You guys are the ones who keep me going. You push me and challenge me. I am very lucky to do what I have been doing for sixteen years now. Yes, I work hard but without my students, I wouldn't be teaching. YOU are the ones that I am thankful for each and every day. I remember this in good times as well as the tough times. Thank you. ♥.
