Philosophy of Tea Series

In 2018 my husband started collecting tea tags for me on a whim. Then I added to the collection by emptying and drying tea bag papers. So was born this interactive collage, postcard series. Each card is 4.25 x 6 inches. Layers of papers/imagery were loosely glued together and an inspirational text added—usually hidden under one or more layers. Materials used include hand-painted papers (sometimes painted with tea), tea tags, tea bag papers, ephemera, and stamping depicting a steaming tea…

Thank you once again Carl for the wonderful 'Zine, xeroxes, ART!

I love this guy's stuff and way of thinking, what can I say? He sent me some stuff, I sent him some back and here today I get in the mail a full size 'zine made up of more of his great stuff, plus a lovely postcard and a kind and friendly note. How does he do it so expediently and yet not miss a beat quality wise? I can only hope to measure up one a these stinkin' days it takes me forever to achieve a fraction of his precision...! Thanks again Carl, right back at you in good time...H.…

Thank You Thea for the killer collage postcard!

Another random mailing? Have I been touched by something? Thank you so much, Thea, for the collage postcard, I received it some time ago but as I've mentioned have been a bit backed up. Love those rounded corners, btw!!! I'm a sucker for that stuff the details shapes forms etc. but also I like how the card you made was so large and sturdy, gave me ideas I should quit it with the xerox paper and bulk up! Carboard rules, you know? Thanks again, I'll be in touch!…

Thank You Alan for Another Fabulous MA Packet Fashioned By Ye Olde Type

Not only did I enjoy the mail art but I love the banter. It's fun to exchange when you're doing it with someone with such a keen eye for the utterly laid back no frills sense of humor sort of candor, I love the work done so meticulously with the old machinery, you've got something cool going here I believe you once referred to it as the Hedgehog Press? Keep it up and keep it coming and thanks again, Alan!…

Thank You Carmela For The Lovely Painted Postcard Palette!

Thank You, Heide (Belatedly!) For The Awesome 'Zine-Letter & Postcard!

I received this packet of MA quite a while ago but it hasn't left my mind and was quite possibly the most friendly piece of art I've gotten since joining IUOMA, thanks Heide! I love the little 'zine especially, kind of a hybrid letter-'zine-intro to who you are and what you're about, love it! I've got stuff in the works as always but I'm slow, I'm slow, forgive me! …

Arte Internacional Sticker

Not the best quality, but here you go. A sticker I made in 2019, updated to 2020. The first version had light blue background, but due to lack of color ink cartridge in my printer I printed it in white.
