"Having seen Martha's door gallery and the shopping trolley - apart from the beard - how else do people show what they're receiving?"
Mail Art Martha commented on Ruud Janssen's group Ask Anything
"Jennifer- it is possible to move de photos and rearrange them once they are inside the album but it is quite fiddly and I have not the patience, or the time.  So not for me. As to the trolley first I wrapped it in canvas and pinned the work on.…"

Jennifer Wallace commented on Ruud Janssen's group Ask Anything
"Martha - Thanks for flagging up your blog ... I love your front door gallery - makes me wish I had that sort of front door. And the same with your shopping trolley! What did you do to your shopping trolley to achieve that?"

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.

Mail in the post for you!

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?
