Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
2000
My Website (without http://):
http://bonniedivablog.blogspot.com/
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I'm a former actress and singer, now teacher and lover of life! I am a mixed media collage artist, specializing trash and vintage. I also love poetry, so many of my pieces include poems. I rescue old old poetry volumes from library sales, thrift stores, etc, and use the pages. I also do altered books, covering the pages of old weary books with life!
Irony and depravity are key, as I find humor in almost every aspect of life. I'm 56 with the mind of a 16 year old and the heart of a lion...originally from New Orleans, but now live near Chicago. I've been creating and sending MAIL ART all over the world since 2000. I'm an artist, teacher and writer. I special in trashpo and vintage collage. I also produce comic ZINES.

I don't like perfection... I like raw soulful art that does not shock for shock value.
I love pen pal letter, tacky postcards, and whatever you want to send me.
VINTAGE is my thing, and I love thrift stores, antique malls and Ebay (aka "the devil"). LOL!
SEND ME SOMETHING SOON AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED!

This thank you is awfully late, as is my sending something to you! :-( But I want you to know I adored the zine and postcard you sent me! I was inspired by your zine to create one for a swap I'm in. Once my zine is printed, I'll send one to you. Thanks so much, again, for the awesome mail. I love it!
