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!

27 July 2016 Journal Page

Had a great time teaching at my friend, Jane Eileen's studio in Arizona. Now I'm home and doing some last minute prep for my Art and Soul Portland classes that begin one week from today. I haven't taught there in several years and I am super excited about it. Mom and I are driving up this weekend (Mom is flying in from Boston.) I'm making check lists of all of the things that I need to do. I try to be as organized as possible as it makes for a better experience for everyone involved.

On the way to and from Arizona, I listened to an Audible book called The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone. One of my favorite local shops, Book Soup, recommended left and right last year so I made note of it. If you haven't heard of it, you may want to check it out. The Audible book is very long and I hope to finish it this week during some studio time.


Blog Love
If you read one article, I hope it is this one about the WPA: When the U.S. Government Paid the Working Class to be Artists

I loved your class! I already finished one page. I hope I can get over my fear of "damaging" my precious images.
