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!

If you're interested in more, my husband's list of Non Hollywood Cartoons is here while the Hollywood Cartoons are here.

Congratulations on Tristan's acceptance to Cal Arts. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed about scholarships and grants for Tristan's tuition. Recently ran across this resource that may be of interest. The TV show, SHARK TANK, on Feb 20, 2015 (see itunes:episode 20-aired 2/20/15)featured an entrepreneur who had successfully acquired 1.5million dollars in scholarship and grants. He turned his fund raising success into an APP, and sought funding from Shark Tank to expand his college scholarship App. The entrepreneur is Christopher Gray. His website is:https://www.myscholly.com/. Two of the venture capitalists on Shark Tank have funded this business. Am hoping that the "myscholly.com"website might yield some really good leads for Tristan's tuition-related fund raising. You can get more details on this recommendation by purchasing the SHARK TANK episode (the one aired on 2/20/15) for $1.99 on itunes. Julie

Thanks for sharing these, Kelly!
(and a head's up -- you've accidentally embedded "The man who planted trees" twice -- the second one is where "Vincent" should be :)
