Through this collaboration Cascadia Artpost and Mail Art Martha are continuing to give impulse to Trashpo, the artistic vision of Diane Keys. ‘Walmarth Corporation is an entertaining and witty parody of corporate, consumer culture.

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
have decorated envelopes from time to time for some years ...
My Website (without http://):
http://No website
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
It is such a free open and spiritually democratic way of doing art - making & sharing in one flow. The sharing-showing of my work is of a piece with its making.

I got fired up by Ray Johnson some years ago, reading ' Ray Johnson correspondences by organiser Donna de Salvo.. I return to it again & again.

Also 'Mailed Art in Uppsala Choosing Your Partner / Valj din Partner' , editor Peter R Meyer. In fact it was re-reading this catalogue today that led me to Google Klaus Groh and then found this website !

wonderful, intriguing envelope and art work.I love it and enjoyed the French text on reverse, good idea using a page from a book - page headed DE CAUMONT ABECEDAIRE D' ARCHEOLOGIE  (!)

A great surprise for me- thank you for thinking of me.


Surprise 'mystery' post arrives in east London - my thanks

I have received something good but with out name or address I can make out.  The envelope says 'ART IS FOR EVERY ONE'.

  Inside :  all kinds of graphics and  stamps in array with words DKA POSI as part of the design. Enjoyable and intriguing. 

 On the back it says 'YOU ARE AN ARTIST'


WHOEVER you are many thanks !"
