Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I have always loved exchanging art with other artists around the world because it stimulates my self-expression and tunes me in to what other artists are doing and thinking at a deeper level than what I see in museums or read in books. I also love being part of the eternal network, a form of communication which stimulates me artistically, emotionally, intellectually, and politically/socially all at the same time. :)

Hi, Carla! Thank you for accepting my friend request! Living in NSW is great during the spring and summer. Lots of good beaches to sunbake in :). It gets so hot during the summer though so bushfires are a big risk. I will try to  get some mail to you soon! :)

Hi Carla, I was hoping to add you to my mail-out list, but looking at your page, it appears you haven't been active for a few months. Are you accepting mail art at this point?

Carla--I stopped by GRO in Point Reyes Station last Monday to view the BOX exhibit. It is spectacular! and so was your box! Such creativity on view--I can understand why it is such a hit with the art community.

Just finished drawing this within the last half hour and I'm totally digging it so I thought I'd share it here… reminds me of the good old days when afros were in and there was lots of hope and love in the air.  Maybe those days will come back again before I die! ;)
