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!

What I'm Reading: Stefan Zweig

I'm a bit obsessed with Stefan Zweig at the moment. I found two more of his books last night at Iliad in North Hollywood. I just realized that I left my copy of The Post Office Girl out of this shot. That was the first Zweig book that led me down the rabbit hole. 

Last month, David found a hardcover copy of Amok for me. We were in the bookstore and he came up to me and said, "I found something you will like." I saw the spine and smiled. He said, "Open it." I squealed when I saw what was inside the front cover. No. Not an autographed Zweig. Something almost as good. Inside was a bookplate that read, "From the library of George Cukor." Yes. "Philadelphia Story" Cukor. I wonder if he had plans to adapt it. I wonder what Wes Anderson would think.
