I like communication, art, paper, painting and concepts. The ideal combination for doing Mail-Art. Worked with rubberstamps as a child and started sending out letters as soon as I could write. Discovered that it was called mail-art in 1980. Have been discovering ever since and in the last years also promoting this free cultural exchange.
Love of my life, my wife, Nat Uhing, died suddenly in her sleep 2 months ago. Autopsy revealed there was nothing wrong with her. She was 45.
I have no access to her lap top, I can´t open any of her accounts without passwords. I keep getting piles of letters from IUOMA.
Could you please, spread the word that Nat Quintos Uhing died so people don´t get angry when they will receive no return letters. Thanks .

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Nat was not a IUOMA member. I received a mail art from Nat last March and sent back another one. That has been all my contact with her. The sender address is Nat´s. I have no idea what to do at this time. Do you?
