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!

The Book of Intentions October 2016

For the next couple of weeks, I'll be taking you on a tour of my journal called, "The Book of Intentions." I began it mid-October of last year. With everything that was happening last year, it took me until early December to finish it. 

It's constructed from a recycled priority mailer, handmade paper, cardstock and waxed linen thread. It's one of my favorite journal constructions. I hope that you enjoy seeing the pages here. 


I'm going to be headed to Taos, New Mexico in early November to teach for the first time and I'm looking for recommendations. I have a list but for my artist friends who have been there  (or who want to go there), what would you recommend doing? I'd like to visit the Mabel Dodge Luhan House and the Harwood Museum, for starters. I'm going to look into some guide books for the area before I go. I'd love any tips that I can use and share with my students and ideas of things for my Mom (a.k.a my traveling buddy) to do while I teach. Thanks in advance. I am very excited about returning to New Mexico and visiting Taos for the first time.
