What does mail art mean to me? It is jumping off point for me, personally and for the art I am doing at this time. It is a chance to collaborate with other artists from around the world. It has also opened up ways of seeing that I normally would not have had.
I find it very interesting that in a world that is relying more and more on the internet and digital media that mail art is growing and going strong since the nineteen fifties
I find it refreshing to receive something that has been created by another artist in a commerce free zone that I may build on, add to, and pass on to others and also keep for my self. The art work I get in the mail also inspires me to do other art projects and get more of my work out to other mail artists. We are all part of an organism that is changing every day and growing in a fun and conceptual way.

Oh yeah, I go to the Oly Club rather often. I live right down the street. In fact, I was there for several hours yesterday and had a blast! Lots of good music happening there. It is my favorite place. Test
