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!

What I'm Reading: Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (In That Order)

For the past few years, I've been extremely curious about artists whose work I am unfamiliar with. I think I've already established that I'm a bibliophile and an artist (not sure which one of those goes first.) I recently was gifted with a copy of Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (In That Order) and I've had a very hard time putting the book down. 

Written by Bridget Quinn and illustrated by Lisa Congdon, the book is a perfect mesh of art, art history and memoir. I've forced myself to slowly devour it chapter by chapter instead of gulping it all down in one go. It's definitely a title that deserves a special place on my bookshelf. 

I'm not the only one who loves it. There are great reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and Huffington Post for starters.

What are you reading?
