Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
2009
My Website (without http://):
http://www.myrealwall.com
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I love writing and receiving letters and have recently closed my facebook account in order to concentrate on letter writing. These days, instead of posting on my facebook wall, I get people to write me by post and then I post everything on my REAL wall, and photograph it for upload to www.myrealwall.com

When I found out about the mail-art movement I realised that the wall, which itself is my work of art, was perfectly suited for incorporating other peoples art and decided that I would get involved in this community.

I am working on my own mail-art as well as actively involved in displaying any that I receive and I endeavour to write back to anyone who sends me anything.

Bring it on!
