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!

A Look Back at An Artist's Study and Remembering

"I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to know better." -Frida Kahlo

On the last page of my journal, An Artist's Study, I wrote some of my thoughts that gave birth to this journal. I also included a list of the original pieces that I used on my pages:

16. Roots

I hope that you have enjoyed my journey as I combined the work of a favorite artist with my own pieces. Some days the work came together quickly. Other pieces, I really struggled with. In the end, I'm really glad that I did this and am eager to do it again with some other artists whose work has inspired me.

If you click here, An Artist's Study, you can see all of the pages in the journal. (I began it on the 10th of September and finished it on the 13th of October 2015.)


Remembering Emily Quinlan on this date. It's been ten years since my Dad called me to tell me what had happened. I think of her often. How I miss them both.
