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!

Home... for a Quick Minute


I had a wonderful time teaching in Arizona. Big thanks to Cheryl and Create Space Studio for hosting, to everyone who took a workshop with me this weekend and to my friends Debbie (Frenzy Stamper) and Jeane for letting me crash with them. It was a really nice weekend.

Now I'm home for a few days before I turn around and trek out to teach Expanding Your Color Palette in San Diego on Saturday and then back in L.A. for a workshop called In The Studio: Developing an Art Practice in Mar Vista on Sunday.


I'm making plans now to trek to Sacramento on Thursday before I go to Maria's later that night. I really want to see the Richard Diebenkorn exhibit at the Crocker Museum. The museum is open late that night so I figure I'll get there about 3, spend some time there and then turn around and head to Fremont. An art adventure weekend! I'm really looking forward to it. These are just some of the things that I am thankful for...

On the Road Again...


Turning around and trekking to Phoenix today for classes this weekend. Hopefully Budget doesn't give me a Mustang this time (not that I have plans for off road driving like I did last time when I trekked to Abiquiu. I'll have to save my visit to see The White Place for next time...) Looking forward to my weekend in Phoenix!
