ABC BOOK at Mail to Bonniediva

July 16, 2023 to July 15, 2024
I love to make ABC books… like the kind you see for children, but instead of the usual “A is for Apple,” I like to use obscure words not usually found in a child’s ABC book, like “A is for Anxiety,” “B is for “Bacchanalia,” “C is for Chihuahua,” etc. Please join me in creating this masterpiece of whimsy! To be clear: you create one page of anything starting with your letter. The size of your page doesn't matter. Then you send me your page and I add it to my ABC book.Then I photograph/scan the…See More

DECOS - Do you miss them?

Do you miss Decos? What’s a DECO? It’s a sort of mail art friendship book, but with a theme. Each book has around 6 to 10 pages inside and a THEME. You do a page according to your art style and following the theme, and you mail it to another DECO person. It’s like an ADD/PASS, in a way. When it’s full, it goes back to the person who started it.I started doing DECOs back in 2004, but then people started making them too heavy, gluing all sorts of heavy embellishments, etc., and I couldn’t afford…See More

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
2000
My Website (without http://):
http://kolajmagazine.com/artistdirectory/bonniediva-shorr
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I'm a former actress and singer, now teacher and lover of life! 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!
Irony and depravity are key, as I find humor in almost every aspect of life. I'm originally from New Orleans, but now live near Chicago. I've been creating and sending MAIL ART all over the world since 2000. I'm an artist, teacher and writer. I special in trashpo and vintage collage. I also produce comic ZINES.

I don't like perfection... I like raw soulful art that does not shock for shock value.
I love pen pal letters, tacky postcards, and whatever you want to send me.
VINTAGE is my thing, and I love thrift stores, antique malls and Ebay (aka "the devil"). LOL!
SEND ME SOMETHING SOON AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED!
