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!

On My Shelf

I started Jessa Crispin's The Dead Ladies Project the other day. I am having a hard time putting it down. 

"It was the dead I wanted to talk to. The writers and artists and composers who kept me company in the late hours of the night: I needed to know how they did it. I'd always been attracted to the unloosed, the wandering souls who were willing to scrape their lives clean and start again elsewhere. I needed to know how they did it, how they survived it...No, if I was going to approach these great men and women, I would need to do it on their territory. I would have to go to them, not expect them to show up here." -Jessa Crispin The Dead Ladies Project

My only complaint is that it isn't in hardcover (I'm one of those nerds. That said I'm very happy to be holding it in my hands.)

I haven't started Patti Smith's M Train yet but at the top of the pile.

The quote you included has drawn me in! I need to check this one out right away, Kelly, thanks. I have been devouring everything written by Ann Patchett lately.
