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!

31 March 2014 Journal Page

One tip I suggest to folks when they're working across the fold is to first fold whatever papers or images that they're going to be placing in that area in half before they glue. Also watch to make sure that when you're gluing your paper, you cover every inch (I missed a couple of spots resulting in the above extra wrinkles. Ce la vie.)

I am teaching at The Making Place in Escondido this Saturday. This is my last San Diego class for awhile (I don't have any on the schedule for May through July. My June and July schedules are full with out of state teaching.) Catch them while you can!

I've been looking forward to John Canemaker's Magic Color Flair: The World of Mary Blair due out next month. I have his original book about Mary Blair (there's an updated version of that due out next month as well) and I've been wondering how different Magic Color Flair is. Jerry Beck answers that question here. I can't wait to go to the exhibit in June! More on Mary Blair here and here.
