MANHOLE COVER LOVERS

There must be billions of them in the world. We pass them every day. We walk on them. We do not take any notice of them. They are heavy, and usually made of cast iron. They come in many different shapes, sizes and patterns. Look, and you will find them everywhere.What are they? MANHOLE COVERS, that provide access to local service systems such as water, electricity, gas, and telecommunications.Post photos of any interesting ones you find here.See More

DECOS - Do you miss them?

Do you miss Decos? What’s a DECO? It’s a sort of mail art friendship book, but with a theme. Each book has around 6 to 10 pages inside and a THEME. You do a page according to your art style and following the theme, and you mail it to another DECO person. It’s like an ADD/PASS, in a way. When it’s full, it goes back to the person who started it.I started doing DECOs back in 2004, but then people started making them too heavy, gluing all sorts of heavy embellishments, etc., and I couldn’t afford…See More

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
2000
My Website (without http://):
http://see my YouTube channel, Bonniediva
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I'm a former actress and singer, now teacher and lover of life! I am a mixed media collage artist, specializing trash and vintage. I also love poetry, so many of my pieces include poems. I rescue old old poetry volumes from library sales, thrift stores, etc, and use the pages. I also do altered books, covering the pages of old weary books with life!
Irony and depravity are key, as I find humor in almost every aspect of life. I'm 57 with the mind of a 16 year old and the heart of a lion...originally from New Orleans, but now live near Chicago. I've been creating and sending MAIL ART all over the world since 2000. I'm an artist, teacher and writer. I special in trashpo and vintage collage. I also produce comic ZINES.

I don't like perfection... I like raw soulful art that does not shock for shock value.
I love pen pal letter, tacky postcards, and whatever you want to send me.
VINTAGE is my thing, and I love thrift stores, antique malls and Ebay (aka "the devil"). LOL!
SEND ME SOMETHING SOON AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED!

On the way to meet you.

I'm still have to finish the drawing, but it was in front of me when I read your statement in "Why I am involved in Mail-Art". The drawing has a legend in the subject that occurs centuries ago in a world famous village of Portugal called Nazaré because of the giant waves of 100 ft.
