When the first xerox was invented they could not have known that this was the beginning of a revolution in the arts.it is still the cheapest & most democratic form of printing. the free press self published zines broadsides experimental poetry bands & mail artists would all benefit from this clever & useful little machine without it todays artistic landscape would look very different . now flash forward 50+ years into the 21st century how many artists are still exploring playing…See More

"Debra, yes! true! Diana IS amazing - the matchbox is filled with what I am guessing is like the green foam for floral crafts, and the recipient gets to place the mailboxes in it, and choose how they are arranged. I love that it is interactive, just…"

Just for SQUARES!

There was a prompt from CreativeSprint to make something just using squares. I'd forgotten how I'd learned to love squares while teaching 2D design with Wucius Wong and Josef Albers Interaction of Color (years ago) I thought, Wow, there must be other Square lovers out there. Thanks to Katerina for the name idea. See More

Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
Being involved in Mail Art is like being part of a magical world parallel to our everyday one. Playful and creative just for the sake of it, sharing and connecting, being present and documenting small moments that would otherwise go unnoticed. It's so beautiful! I enjoy typewriter drawings, concrete poetry, embroidered postcards and collages.

Elly, THAT QUILT IS AWESOME!!!  I love those stamps.  Did you carve them yourself?  I recently started carving some of my own too.  It’s not an easy process to get the hang of, but I’m making strides toward being more confident in my carving abilities.

Thanks for the friend add!  I should be settled in around February 1st, and then I’ll send you an updated address.  I would absolutely love some “Blue Light Special” mail!  As a kid my local K-Mart had a snack stand in the middle of the store, and I would ALWAYS get a popcorn, and a huge cherry Icee EVERYTIME.  It’s the little things that stick with you I guess.

I received your most excellent embroidered mail yesterday.  It came in a USPS plastic bag but was unscathed.  I think the cost for mailing what is considered “non-machinable” mail is 70 cents.  FYI.  No insurance that the work will arrive intact, even tho your did.  I love it and cannot believe how delicate your stitching is, especially my name & address.  Please tell me about the symbolism of the bird grabbing the tiny gold stitch (a bug or morsel of food?). I never heard of Gojo but when I looked it up, I see they manufacture Purell.  What a world we are living in!  Thank you again for sharing this amazing work.
