Olivia Arrow joined Guido Vermeulen's group


A group devoted to the art of trees: free medium. Without trees the world would be dead and a place of disaster. With trees the world can tackle global warming. Hug a tree and you hug the earth, you hug yourself and your neighbors. Without trees, no love!Without love, no trees.A sequel to the mail art project SIGNS and STONES and TREES (of 1998).Guido Vermeulen started this group. After his death the IUOMA members keep it alive with posting photos and drawings of TREES in memory of Guido.See More

Just for SQUARES!

There was a prompt from CreativeSprint to make something just using squares. I'd forgotten how I'd learned to love squares while teaching 2D design with Wucius Wong and Josef Albers Interaction of Color (years ago) I thought, Wow, there must be other Square lovers out there. Thanks to Katerina for the name idea. See More

Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
Mail art is energizing and inspiring to me in a way other art can't match. I has that intimate and immediate quality that I value so much and I find to be rare in our current age. I enjoy mailing as much as receiving.
