April 26, 2020: Mail art arrived from my Twin Cities neighbor, Allison Anne - an accomplished collagist and mixed media artist. It is the first ever piece I received from them.

The art piece I received is a cardboard collage card. This 'trashpo' work measures at approximately 6 3/4" x 5 1/4". The postcard is made entirely of layered cardboard scraps. 

The back of the postcard is made up of larger pieces of cardboard. A mailing address label has been made from an envelope scrap.

cardboard odds and ends. Artist: Allison Anne (Minneapolis, MN)

The front of the postcard consists of layered cardboard pieces. These cardboard scraps vary in size, color, and texture.

Allison Anne's composition has resulted in a unique and FAB collage. The piece is truly a tactile and visual delight. I enjoy running my fingers across the cardboard odds and ends. Visually, it engages my eyes. I like that it is static, yet full of movement.

Like Allison Anne, I too, gravitate towards mixed media and collage art. Here is Minnesota, there is a community of collagists and creative people known as the Twin Cities Collage Collective (TCCC). Allison Anne is a founding member of the collective. In the near future I plan on participating in TCCC collage gatherings.

Thanks for the great mail Allison Anne! You rock!
