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 almost twenty years now. 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!

Art Pilgrimage 2017 Fundraiser: Original Art, Prints, Journal Pages as Mail Art, Postcards and More


"I don't paint out of responsibility. I paint out of need." Jim Dine

In early June, I will be hitting the road for three weeks trekking thousands of miles from Los Angeles to the East Coast (and back.) I'm driving to teach workshops at:
The Queen's Ink in Savage Maryland

I'm planning on taking you with me on my adventures. I can't pack you up and put you in my suitcase but I can share my travels with you via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr and here, on my blog. I can also share some things with you while I'm on the road including original art, prints, journal pages as mail art, as well as postcards from the places I visit. 

Many of you know that my husband has been having health problems for the past year and a half and is still under doctor's care. Thankfully, he seems to be on the road to recovery but still has been having problems and is not where he is supposed to be health wise yet. We're still struggling to get back on our feet. I'm the sole provider for our family and I have been spending most of my time trying to play catch up from not being able to teach as much as I had wanted to last year. 

This has been a longtime dream of mine, to drive to teach across the country teaching and to be able to stop at places of interest (art museums, used bookstores, film locations, etc... along the way. Would you like to help me get there (and get home?)

Original Journal Pages as Mail Art from the Road
Approximately 5 1/2 x 7"

I rarely, if ever, sell finished work. My journals that I sell are work in progress books for YOU to finish so this is something very special and very rare. You will receive an original, one of a kind, double sided page (front and back) from my journal (in the form of mail art.) The page that you will receive will be art as you see it (fully finished) on my blog. Not a copy. Not a print. An original, handmade, one of a kind piece of finished (NOT work in progress) artwork. What I mean by that is, expect a fully layered (collage, paint, mixed media and journaling) finished art journal page. I have been working on these pages in advance and will finish them while on the road. Each day while on the road, I will take the time to add something personal from my daily experiences to your journal page (that means journaling, doodling, drawing, embellishing, noting date and location of where I am, etc...)

These are extremely limited and once they're gone, they're gone. Catch an original journal page from me while you can.

Please note: I will mail these ANYWHERE in the world. Even Antarctica.



SOLD OUT. THANK YOU.

 JUST ADDED: 
By request, I've added a ONE sided journal page option (Please note that this is NOT a finished front AND back but a fully finished ONE sided journal page, front only.)


SOLD OUT. THANK YOU.

Postcards from the Road

While I'm on the road, I plan on visiting a handful of art galleries (including but not limited to MFA Boston (for Matisse in the Studio), Brooklyn Museum (for Georgia O'Keeffe Living Modern), Van Gogh, Matisse and more at the National Gallery in D.C. as well as the Art Institute of Chicago. I'm still in the planning stages of where I am going but these are my Must See Destinations for this trip and one of the main reasons why I am driving. 

I will select postcards from my favorite pieces that I've seen and send them to you along with a personal handwritten note (it will be more than, I wish you were here!) I will purchase, write and mail them while ON the road. 

The cost includes a postcard selected and purchased by me at the museum and U.S. shipping. I will send them outside of the U.S. for additional postage (Postage overseas would be an additional $1 per postcard.).

One Handwritten Postcard from the Road:


SOLD OUT. THANK YOU.
Three Handwritten Postcards from the Road:

Five Handwritten Postcards from the Road:


SOLD OUT. THANK YOU.

Thank you so much for your support!
