Though Surrealism covers a wide range of media, tones and styles, it has an unmistakable vibe for those who resonate with it. Dark, playful, wise, sad, mystifying, transcendent or heartbreakingly beautiful, Surrealism taps into…See More

Hi Melanie!

My apologies, I was quite active on IUOMA for some time, but then I moved to Denmark, where it is quite expensive to send lots of international mail. But I do still make and send postcards, and I'd love to receive yours and send one in return. If you don't mind sending internationally I've updated my address.

Thanks and have a lovely day :)

Thank you for the gorgeous mail art collages, Melanie! Just spectacular - plus a truly remarkable envelope, too! WOW! I'm honored to be connected to you. Something from me is on it's way! xo, Edamameg

Hi Melanie! Thank you for the mail art! So fun to receive a bit of surrealism through the post. 
I’m still trying to learn how to post and notify on this site, you can see your works on the main page. I’ll send something out to you soon. Glad to see another PNW mail artist.
