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!

My Favorite Films of 2016



10. Rogue One

11. Cameraperson (this really should have been nominated for an Oscar.)

A Very Short List of Films I have not seen yet but hope to do so soon (there are more that aren't on this list but these are the ones that come to mind.)

It was a roller coaster of a year because of his health problems. Yet, it was a stellar year in film for us. 

February through July had David in and out of hospitals, doctors' offices and in bed. What kept him sane was film, which has always been his passion. When we were able, we took full advantage of living where we live (La La Land) to see many (if not all) of the above films with either the director or cast in attendance for Q and A's. Thankfully, most were free (even though that translates to time spent standing in line and thankfully, most of the time spent paid off with some film gems that will forever stay with us.)

Seeing the crew and cast talk about their work adds another layer to the film and only enriches our journey. We were lucky to see what we saw last year and to have met the people that we met. More importantly, we were extremely lucky that my husband was given (and is still being given) much needed medical care. and that these little shimmers of light projected on a screen continue to enrich our lives especially in a year in which we so badly needed them. And they say that magic doesn't exist...
