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!

May 4th and 5th Workshops at The Ink Pad NYC!

Both classes are fresh and new workshops that teach a wide variety of NEW ideas involving acrylic painting, collage, creative processing, self expression, composition, design, layering and much, much more. 

Each workshop stands on its own or can be taken together to expand your creativity.

Beginners to advanced are welcome in ALL of the classes.


My workshops are always process-based learning while creating a unique product. 

Please note there is a small supply list.

The class fee includes a vast array of mediums and materials to complete the necessary project. It is well known that I do not travel light to any of my classes. I will be bringing such things as: 
  • acrylic paints

  • rubber stamps 
  • ink pads 
  • decorative tape
  • stencils

Friday May 4th PM workshop:

 

 


 
 
Conversations in Paint, Paper and Pen 
 
Art Journaling has been a passion of mine for over twenty years now. 
 
"How do you keep your work fresh, open and honest?" 
 
"How do you generate new ideas?" 
 
These are questions that I'm often asked. We'll explore the answers in this workshop. We'll dive onto our pages utilizing my latest favorite techniques in paint, paper and pen. Learn how to open up visually while creating truly unique to you pages. I'll share with you not only how I find inspiration but how you can take the ideas and make them for what you need!  
 

Please note that the ideas we are exploring also translate to other art mediums and fields.
 
Supply List: your journal, an apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), cork back metal ruler, a few pieces paper towels OR an old rag,  1" brush to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle brushes) as well as a few, smaller, detailed brushes, a small container to clean your brushes (an old jar, etc...), a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer), a few pieces of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)
 
Saturday, May 5th: PM workshop:
 


Expanding Your Color Palette

Sometimes we find ourselves in a rut with our color palette. Learn how to push past the same old same old and expand your use of color. 

Explore a wide variety of color possibilities! Learn how to go beyond the tube and get the look that you want in your artwork.

We will be doing collage work as well as exploring a multitude of mixed media ideas in this workshop. Prepare to get messy and be pushed (and push back) in this expressive and new workshop.

Please note that the ideas we are exploring also translate to other art mediums and fields.
