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!

I took some forced time off this weekend. Canceled classes don't make me happy but it is what it is. I know that I'm not supposed to talk about when classes get canceled but it happens to all of us. It's happening more and more these days and it's not looking pretty. I'll just say that I'm not going down without a fight. Teaching is what I do best and what I am most passionate about. I've been doing it for about eighteen years now. I hope to be doing it for many, many more.

That said, because I'm on a little holiday this weekend, I extended the sale of my latest online class until noon tomorrow (Monday.) The price is $20 until then. After that, it goes up to $25. The 49+ page handout is posted and the class is ready when you are!

This coming weekend I'm trekking to Arizona. I'll be teaching five new classes. Samples are in the store. If you know anyone who may be interested, I'd appreciate it if you'd help spread the word.  You can find all of the information in the links below.


6th and 7th The Paper Collage Sun City West, AZ Four NEW classes


8th Sun City West Illuminated Musings  

Off to resume being on holiday. My little mini vacation time will be spent developing new class ideas (the wheels are always turning and I am very grateful that they do so), working in my art journal, listening to old time radio, reading, going for a walk and watching a film later on with the family.

Speaking of films, David and I watched The Great Beauty the other day. In the extras, the director tried to convince us that it didn't have any connection to Fellini's wonderful La Dolce Vita. Funny that he says that as it seems that whole scenes are lifted directly from the film. Any ways, I recommend seeing both. La Dolce Vita should be seen first and then The Great Beauty. I'll leave you with some shots from both films:
