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!

On My Shelf

David and I have been cleaning our bookshelves recently (for various reasons), trading in books for credit at the local used bookshops. I have to laugh when I bring in a box for credit only to come home with the same amount of books in return...

I blame the Hopper book on watching season three of Twin Peaks. I've been eyeing it for weeks. I am quite shocked that there aren't any Francis Bacon books in this pile (wagging a finger at you, Lynch) for my current interest (obsession?) in his work where there had been none prior. On that note, Francis Bacon In Your Blood (The audio version) is excellent. 

Am still on a big David Park kick at the moment. With less than 75 pages to go in David Park: A Painter's Life, I can't stop thinking about it. It is definitely one of the best artist bios I've ever read. I am always on the lookout for a good book that will help improve me as an artist, an art teacher and as a human, this is a book that has earned a place on my shelf. 

Do you have any recent art book reads which you want to share?
