I love to send and receive hand painted, hand drawn, printmaking [silkscreen, intaglio, lithography, etc.], artist trading cards (ATCs), zines and hand-bound books. Please include "IUOMA" and your online / screen name so I know who to send back to if it is different from your account name. Please no Sharpie or permanent markers, the ink is unstable and rapidly degrades. Please do not fold original art works. I always try to send out interesting things and my very best work. Please do not rush to mail back to me; I would rather wait a year than get something rushed out of a feeling of obligation.
Please note, Chicago mail delivery is very bad! Wrapping interior art in an envelope with plastic or waxed paper helps. My mailman has to trudge through the rain, snow and ice storms on foot and sometimes my mail gets wet. Any item over 1/4 inch thick can be destroyed by mass sorting mail machines.
Over 100 of my artist trading cards (ATCs) from 2013:

Hi Shellie. Once again I am blown away by your unique talent. Loved the book and the title! I was very touched by the woman & rabbit -- a good way of expressing your feelings. I just returned to my house today after renting it out for a week to 3 Brazilians going to Burning Man. They left some interesting trinkets behind. So good to be home, and I will be getting right on the mail art bandwagon. Thanks so much for the treasures. Good luck in school. ox
