Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
My Website (without http://):
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I like communication, art, paper, painting and concepts. The ideal combination for doing Mail-Art. Worked with rubberstamps as a child and started sending out letters as soon as I could write. Discovered that it was called mail-art in 1980. Have been discovering ever since and in the last years also promoting this free cultural exchange.

Hi Ruud.  I received a snail mail today that says. 


End of May


Love of my life, my wife, Nat Uhing, died suddenly in her sleep 2 months ago.  Autopsy revealed there was nothing wrong with her.  She was 45.

I have no access to her lap top, I can´t open any of her accounts without passwords.  I keep getting piles of letters from IUOMA.

Could you please, spread the word that Nat Quintos Uhing died so people don´t get angry when they will receive no return letters.  Thanks .

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Nat was not a IUOMA member.  I received a mail art from Nat last March and sent back another one.  That has been all my contact with her.  The sender address is Nat´s.  I have no idea what to do at this time.  Do you?
