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!

28 April 2014 Journal Page

I'm in full prep mode for my summer workshops. Writing up handouts, buying and prepping materials, etc... I'm a bit behind on that new pen post that I promised you but I hope to have it very soon. Thanks for your patience. 

Last night on Instagram, I posted a page in progress. I spent a (rare) two hours working on it. It was a sad and frustrating day yesterday and nothing was working out right. I finally dripped ink on the page and hated it. I took a baby wipe to it and started rubbing and wiping it off. Hated it some more. I took scissors to it and started scratching into the page. Interesting. It's still a work in progress (I'll share it on the blog when I am finished.)


If you don't know, I post my in progress pages on instagram and the finished pages eventually get posted to the blog. I post all of my pages to encourage folks that if I can do it, so can you!
