Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
before I knew what mail art was
My Website (without http://):
http://www.missivemaven.com
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I have been a letter-writer since I could hold a pencil. I love decorating my mail, and I always thought of myself as someone who just liked to make things look interesting and unusual in the mailbox. For years I was hesitant to call myself a Mail Artist - I mean, heck, am I really an Artist? - but the book Good Mail Day convinced me otherwise. I love the underground, revolutionary spirit of mail art, and when it all comes down to it, I just love to send and receive interesting and different-looking mail. Or just eye-catching. Or weird. Or wonderful.
My Mail-Adress (snail and/or E-mail)
I can no longer share my address publicly.
