Hannah Höch (fan club)

Some mail artists add a stamp print to their mail art, saying 'Hannah Hoch Fan Club'.Until I received these stamp prints I never had heard of this artist, who was born 1st of November 1889. She has been a collage / photomontage pioneer. She was part of the Dada movement and also became involved in the De Stijl art movement. For anyone who has a Hannah Höch Fan Club Stamp (and interested…See More

Barcode Mail Art

Barcodes. They are everywhere, but surprisingly not used that often in mail art. When I received this piece of Barcode mail art (named 'Variation on a barcode Op. 99') thanks to Dean, Artist in Seine, I wanted to post it in the IUOMA Barcode Mail Art group. However... I couldn't find any Barcode group!.. That's why and how this group started here.You can post your received or sent Barcode…See More

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
2009 (and not aware being mailarting since 1979)
My Website (without http://):
http://heleendevaan.blogspot.com
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
Making illustrations is my life.
Furthermore: I like to see other people's creative outbursts, love to see creative additions to envelopes. I like stamps, like to communicate via art works, I'm fascinated by how snail mail works: put a stamp and address on an envelope and a whole system of people and transportation means is bringing that single envelope to wherever you want.
Count up all previous words and see: Mail Art is inevitable.

P.S. If you want to create and send me mail art about your favourite (weird or common) animal I will be most happy; I'll like to post it on my http://realweirdanimals.blogspot.com blog.

What or whom is she staring at?

Posted on January 3, 2018 at 1:21am 138 Comments

I've sent her to various colleague mail artists.

And great 'this is what she sees' returned home.

Of course new visions still are welcome.

Thank you very much, all of you!

Diorama from Dean

Stamps which are almost loose but still in their place... Mail from Paris... 

That must be Dean's!

The stamps were added to an enormous box which had succeeded  to enter my p.o.box. Too big for the scanner, so I show it thanks to 'real…

The Soccer Field AAP's

Posted on October 24, 2015 at 3:36pm 4 Comments

For some unknown reason I got a note-pad full of soccer field sheets. First I wanted to draw my favourite soccer team in it, but that appeared  too much work regarding the little time I have.

Fortunately some colleague mail artists are willing to help to complete the sheets.

I'll post the added-to-and-passed-on-and-returned-to-me sheets in this…

an envelope for Hannah's Birthday Box posted to Heleen today but it was severely 'labelled' by the P.O. clerk so heaven knows when it will arrive . . .

Hi Heleen, thanks for letting me know about the A&P. To answer your question, send it on to whomever you like.  ~Bill@The Olathe Poste

Hello Heleen. My profile is up to date. The address I have there is the current one. See you in the mail. :)

Dear Heleen


Thank. Returning the collage to Moscow would have had meaning if there was still free space on the paper sheet. I could complete the collage and send it to Brazil.


Or do you fill in the sheet yourself with signs?

Hi Heleen,

Yes, please send me the Add N' Pass.

Thanks,

Norma

Hello Heleen


I send you a collage in the framework of the program ADD & PASS. Please add and send on.


With good wishes in the new year,
Ilya

Hi Helen, thank you, I am glad you got my mail and liked it! 

Oh, it would be great to get a cow sometime, but no rush ...

I've been very slow myself!
