Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
2016
My Website (without http://):
http://i have no website
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
just like frida kahlo, i also make art from my bed.....

i am completely bedridden w/very severe ME/CFS, a chronic, complex, wholly disabling, completely life altering systemic, misunderstood neuroimmune disease. i can't speak, sit up, read, tolerate any sound, visitors or sun light. i run on only wisps of fumes (hence my need 2 use abbreviations). i am 2 weak 2 lift a metal fork without becoming winded. i've not left my bed for over 3 yrs.

i've always been creative but mainly in 3D. now this is the only thing i am able 2 do. besides giving me an incredible sense of purpose, it keeps me sane & its the most fun i have being tethered 2 a bed in a darkened room, completely isolated from the world outside my 4 walls. i create mostly envelope art & some postcards.

my work is varied & ever evolving. i do illustrations. sometimes collage, a little watercolor or just ur name as a focal point & sometimes i use rubber stamps. i enjoy using the postage stamps 4 inspiration. i love abstraction & children’s art.

whatever i create depends on my energy level @ the time. it's a very slow process. despite being completely cut off from the world outside my bedroom, there is no shortage of inspiration. i am a creative machine. the ideas never stop flowing, however i am limited as to what i can physically execute which includes my energy level & the tools i use in order to create. i am unable to sit up or lift the weight of my arms so i do this on a clip board, under the light of a headlamp while laying on my left side, propped up on my elbow. my “studio” is a 10 x 10 inch space on my bed; the same space I eat, sleep & cuddle with my cat on, b/c i'm unable 2 physically write more than just a name & mailing address, u will rarely get a quick note inside. otherwise, i send envelopes that r either empty, filled w/ephemera or a little watercolor.

2 reasons y envelopes appeal 2 me:

the idea of turning something, plain & otherwise ordinary in2 something extraordinary is how i’ve lived my life; it just excites me 2 no end. & lets face it, envelopes r pretty plain & ordinary.

unlike a postcard which may only b seen by the PO on the addressed side, w/out the art, i surmise seeing envelope art adds some variety 2 the otherwise repetitive, plain, boring envelope processing day. hopefully it brings smiles 2 their postal worker faces.

but here is the most liberating & imperceptible part of being able to send mail art to people all over the world: it has allowed a piece of me 2 b seen. 2 b able 2 travel outside the confines of the bed which i am tethered 2; 2 feel the breeze, c all the colors & creatures of mother earth, 2 feel the sun kiss my skin...this is an experience that would otherwise b absolutely impossible in all of my encompassing debility.

i ty 4 taking the time 2 read this
My Mail-Adress (snail and/or E-mail)
**Interested in exchanging envelopes &/or postcards. if it’s not ur thing, then do whatever ur creative soul directs; i will love it just the same. plz, no A/P's

iv’e been given over 30 nicknames thru the years, so 4 my mailing address, i invite u all 2 b creative with my name. here r some more recent ones. take ur pick or come up with w/ur own! lets have some fun!

I do keep track, I have a index card system in a vintage index card organizer (I got it for $1.00 at the thrift store) that has the names of people in alphabetical order and on their card I have their name, address, and items sent and received. You got 2 items from me because I mailed you something 1st, then you mailed me art, and then it was my turn to mail you art again. The lack and white prices are just paper I got SUPER cheap ($0.49 a package of 20) and cut up so I could write on them. I didn’t make them and wouldn’t call them art, just notecards I use to write notes in.
