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!

20th of November 2016 Journal Page

My next step is to try to figure out how everything's going to fit in the rental car. I have things to give away all weekend long as door prizes. I also have some books to sell (listed here if you'd like me to bring any specific titles, please let me know as I can't bring them all.) Still trying to clean out my little apartment... 

The page above was made when David was still recuperating from surgery and we were waiting for the first round of results after his surgery. It sums up my thoughts and feelings (for me) at the time perfectly. 

Been thinking about art making a lot these past few days and how I use it to process, explore and document my life and the world around me. I have never thought of it as an escape but more so as my sanity. I gravitate towards images, colors, shapes and patterns that reflect what I'm thinking and how I'm feeling.You may work in a different way but this is what works for me. Art is always what we need it to be...
