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

Sunday with Jodorowsky

Yesterday we visited Blum and Poe Gallery on La Cienega for the first time. David and I went to see pascALEjandro Alchemical Love, the collaborative work of Alejandro Jodorowsky and his wife, Pascale Montandon Jodorowsky. These are the photos that I took of the afternoon.

The artists.

Later that night we went to The Egyptian theatre in Hollywood to see Jodorowsky, a book signing and his two films, The Holy Mountain and Sante Sangre (in 35mm!)

Jodorowsky signed for everyone in line who bought a book (I know that they quickly ran out.) He got through the entire signing line in about 23 minutes! 

Just when I thought that the night couldn't possibly get any better... I kept telling David that Nicolas Winding Refn would show up and BAM! who was the moderator? Nic Refn! 

“We need to discover the taste of life, really what we are. You have a big marvelous emotion when you start to love yourself. You recognize who you are. The cosmos put millions and million of years into you. You’re a masterwork.”-Jodorowsky

“An artist is a person who opens his perception and sees something you don’t see- for a moment...Poetry still exists.” -Jodorowsky

It's not every day that you get to meet a true maestro and we waited a long time for it to happen. So grateful to live where we live to and for the opportunities that we have.
