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 over seventeen 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!

What I'm Reading


 “Time to leave now, get out of this room, go somewhere, anywhere; sharpen this feeling of happiness and freedom, stretch your limbs, fill your eyes, be awake, wider awake, vividly awake in every sense and every pore.”  
-Stefan Zweig, The Post-Office Girl

I should be finished with Stefan Zweig's The Post Office Girl by the end of today. Deciding on which Zweig book to read next.

(Update: I finished it. I loved it and would recommend it. Still not sure which book I'll be picking up to read next later on tonight.)

I was quite happy to find a copy of Kierkegaard's Diary as I had been looking for it for some time now. I also picked up Kafka's Diaries while looking for a copy of Letters to Felice (no luck yet on that one.)

What are you reading?

22 October 2014 Journal Page


"Be proud of your mistakes. Well, proud may not be exactly the right word, but respect them, treasure them, be kind to them, learn from them. And, more than that, and more important than that, make them. Make mistakes. Make great mistakes, make wonderful mistakes, make glorious mistakes. Better to make a hundred mistakes than to stare at a blank piece of paper too scared to do anything wrong." -Neil Gaiman
