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.

Mixed media envelope by Ruth Giles

"You're welcome.  I'm glad you like it.  I think I sent you an A&P - just keep it, if you don't want to pass it on! Thank you for your lovely collages - I've put them on my bedroom wall."

Hi Melanie, thanks for you message. I can read them but I can't reply to them (ning problem). I'll respond in the mail because otherwise I think my continual public commenting will be taking up too much screen space for other people.

Thank you so much for the collage mail art! I love the origami heads! I will send mail to you soon!

Thanks so much Melanie for such a neat story book and pictures!  They are all so lovely! I love the grey scale with the color pops! Thanks so much for trading. I hope mine hits your mail box soon!

Hi Melanie! I received The Party and Home Brew on the 31st! Thank you so much, I've documented these with scans of them on my IUOMA blog. Will correspond this week~

Thank you very much for "In the Depths", "Dropping", and "Protection". They were received by me yesterday. I love the blending of body and texture in your pieces. Currently looking around the walls of my room, trying to find the perfect spot for them :) Some of my art is on its way to you now!

Hi Melanie, thanks for being my friend, I hope we can exchange  mailart soon. Creative greetings, Yvonne

Hi Melanie!

My apologies, I was quite active on IUOMA for some time, but then I moved to Denmark, where it is quite expensive to send lots of international mail. But I do still make and send postcards, and I'd love to receive yours and send one in return. If you don't mind sending internationally I've updated my address.

Thanks and have a lovely day :)

Thank you for the gorgeous mail art collages, Melanie! Just spectacular - plus a truly remarkable envelope, too! WOW! I'm honored to be connected to you. Something from me is on it's way! xo, Edamameg
