Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
Having run across a reference to mail art in my web-browsing just this morning, I m intrigued & love the idea of having treasures arrive in the mail!
I work as a costume designer & dressmaker, & long ago got an MFA (Master of Fine Arts) degree from SMU, Dallas. It would be great to have an excuse to flex my pencil-wielding muscles again.

Just have fun--we're not a group that judges talent, expression, etc. some of us are more clever than others, more humorous, more talented as painters, calligraphers, etc--BUT ALL  of us have something unique to contribute to this genre, and to the world. Looking forward to seeing your contributions in the mail and online!

PS: My IUOMA avatar is a life mask of me as Gaia, Earth Goddess. I used seed pods, snakeskin, feathers, bone animals and semi-precious stones, as well as other decorative items.

There are no rules in mail art....
we do have a general guide tho....
I also have my own "Do's & Dont's" but those are my opinion & not rules...

Pewnn, this is a friendly welcome to The Eternal Network from a celestial mail artist born and raised in a heavenly corner of the faraway universe called Republik van Patland.  A perfect start here is mail-art exchange. I would love to be the other end when you decide it’s the right time for you to start trading art. If that’s the case at the time, your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe                                                                                         
Caixa Postal 24827

II look forward to see your piece in my terrene mailbox.  Yes! I will do my homework after receiving yours.  This is nothing less than a celestial promise.  I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Envelope Provider.
