About E.J.

Artist, researcher, writer, spiritual traveler of this fascinating orb we inhabit, lover of life and all it has to offer. Hi everyone out there in GMG land. My name is Ellen “E.J.” Lefavour (a/k/a “Ejay Khan” – the pseudonym I used during my years as a political activist artist). I moved to Cape Ann in September of 2010, and was thrilled to be invited by Joey to become a daily contributor to Good Morning Gloucester in December of that year. I am a painter, photographer and writer who has lived and worked as an artist for 20 years, since leaving the corporate world in 1990 to pursue my passion. My contributions to GMG will consist of images (either my paintings, photographs, montages or the occasional video) and a little history about the image, called “Did you Know?” I hope to come up with tidbits of information that people don’t already know, or had forgotten they knew. As I am new here, everything is new and fascinating to me, especially the amazing history, so bear with me if I post something that is common knowledge – I’ll eventually come up with something that’s new to you. As an artist, I will also write about the incredible art scene on Cape Ann. Please take a minute to comment on my posts, like them or not, especially if you have corrections or something to add, as that is how I, and all of us, learn. Have a Good Morning Gloucester, and a blessed day.

    Glad to see you found yourself in a great creative mode. You were scaring me last week.

      You know what they say: “It’s always darkest before the dawn”. The dark time sucks, but we emerge and something amazing always comes after it.

    I really like what you’re doing here, E.J. — if I didn’t find Photoshop incomprehensible, I’d be copying you.

    • E.J. says:

      Thanks Bill. Photoshop is a great creative tool, but it can be pretty daunting and has a long learning curve. I’ve been working and learning it for many years to be able to do what I can with it, and there is still alot of it I don’t know how to use, and I have an older version.
