Surrealist Society

I was turned on to Dali and Max Ernst in my 20s and that was it for me. Ever since, I’ve been a committed Surrealism fan and Surrealist artist. Though Surrealism covers a wide range of media, tones and styles, it has an unmistakable vibe for those who resonate with it. Dark, playful, wise, sad, mystifying, transcendent or heartbreakingly beautiful, Surrealism taps into…See More

Pacific Northwest Mail Artists

This group is for mail artists in the northwest corner of the U.S. and British Columbia.  Exchange mail art with your region's artists and maybe meet in person.  We are planning quarterly meetings in the Seattle area where we will make mail art together and share what we are working on, as well as some favorite pieces we have received.  We'll also share tips and techniques.  Put a face to the name on the envelope!See More

Profile Information

My Website (without http://):
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I found out about IOUMA from a woman wearing postage stamp pajamas at Breitenbush Hot Springs. I have been exchanging mail art throughout my life with my sister, a retired USPS letter carrier.

I like to make art and send and receive mail. I like the idea that in mailing a piece of art you are giving it away.

I love paper, printmaking, collage, color, surrealism, juxtaposition, all things vintage.

I am a bookseller, and also recycle old books into journals.

Just found about this group from Barb Candiotti -- are you her sister or a relative? I like the idea of a Pacific NW mail artists group, and would love to attend a group meeting whenever it next becomes possible. I am also a big fan (and practitioner) of collage and surrealism. Please check out my photos and website if you care to. I'll send some mail art your way! :) - Melanie
