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!

Poetic Expressions of the Self Journal

It's been a wee bit since I've shared the inside pages of a journal with you. I try to post my journals in order (I am still hoping to go back someday and post the older ones via a slideshow. Yes, earlier than the ones that are on the sidebar.) This journal has been living at Everything Scrapbook and Stamps in Lake Worth, FL for a few months now and I've been waiting to share it with you. 

Above is the front cover of my, Poetic Expressions of the Self Journal. It was started in mid June while we were waiting for David to have his surgery. We had been given the surgery date of Father's Day only to go into the office a few days before and find out that the surgery had been postponed by a week and that the secretary had forgotten to call us. It was only a small part of the long journey that we're still on. I'm glad that I have art as a way to process everything going on in my little world (as well as the bigger world.)

Somewhere along the way either the cover was scratched or a little white paint was dropped onto the face. I never seal my covers and I'm not worried about it. It's just a part of the process and it's interesting to see how the books age.

I hope that you will enjoy seeing the pages over the next few weeks here.
