Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I love to create things - but even more than that I like to share the things I make. I love the inspiration that comes from receiving art from others, and nothing beats the experience of holding actual art (as opposed to just looking at electronic images,say). I like having 'treats' to look forward to - and receiving mail art is a big treat for me. I get huge joy from imagining how my art is travelling, and how it will be received when it arrives. It makes me smile.

I have received much wonderful mail art over the last couple of months, which has been a joy and delight for me! I am very behind with my thank you's and blogging - but I will get to it. I have not been idle though and have 87 pieces of mail addressed to all those who have sent me mail! I'll be posting it all on Monday!

washing or art on new years day?

Posted on January 1, 2015 at 9:30am 2 Comments

Happy New year everyone! I have woken to a beautiful,breezy,sunny day after days of drizzle,thunderstorms and wet washing. But wait: does this mean I must hang the washing....Not likely. What it means is that any painting I do will dry quickly - and painting is obviously much more appropriate for new years day. Plus I had an early night while my family were revelling, so I've got peace and quiet while they slumber blissfully. I hope luck smiles on your new years day too - and into the future…

Hi, I`m off the mail art circuit since I lost everything I owned in the Santa Rosa, California fires. 25 years of art gone. I`m struggling to get back to creating again but it`s hard. Sorry I lost your mail art. Be well, Thomas

Hello, I have not received whatever it was you sent back in July as yet...

Hi, I'm replying to your comment nearly three years later. Sorry for the delay. I decided I couldn't prioritize mail art during college, but now I would like to get into it.

Thanks for watching my videos! I have made them private because if I ever get back into vlogging I would want it to be of a better quality. I might go for podcasting instead as I find cameras to be tricky.

I'll be adding your address to my list so I can send you something when I get around to making some things. If you would like my address, you could PM me (if that is a thing - I haven't navigated the site much yet).

All the best!
