Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I am a mixed media collage artist, specializing trash and vintage. I also love poetry, so many of my pieces include poems. I rescue old old poetry volumes from library sales, thrift stores, etc, and use the pages. I also do altered books, covering the pages of old weary books with life!
I'm from New Orleans, but now live in the wilds of the Midwest!
IUOMA has really kept me working and exploring my art.
Please send me your art, and I will always send you something in return!
