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!

Composing A Life: A Journal Box


Home from East Coast Home. Lots on the to do list before I pack up again and head north to Modesto this weekend (teaching a one day, special class for the Art Menagerie Group of Modesto. More here.) 

Thinking about my trip and the New Year and what's to come in 2014. Lots to process, think about and plan for yet still working on slowing down and enjoying the now.

Above is my latest journal project, Composing a Life: A Journal Box. I'll be debuting it later this month at Maria's studio in Fremont, CA. I was inspired by Marcel Duchamp's Box in a Valise. I have had it in my head for several years now to do a class inspired by one of my favorite pieces. I was lucky to see it in person at MOMA last year (I made a beeline for it as soon as I caught a glimpse of it.)  I'll be showing my box project here on the blog over the next couple of weeks. I hope that you enjoy it!

Perfect, Kelly! I have a leather-ish hat box I could use for this!

Oh that looks amazing Kelly and I am so looking forward to seeing more of it. I know that I will certainly enjoy it.

I hope to make a start on one of the courses I bought from you next week - haven't had time to do any crafting so far this year!
