"I'm not a historian, but I would guess when the artist's of the 60's starting send postcards through the mail, it was just a term picked up because it was being 'mailed'. I think that Ray Johnson started creating mail art in…"

As a child living in Africa in the 60's, I would decorate envelopes to my Babu.

Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I love to send and receive art through the mail. As an art teacher for many years, I truly believe everyone is an artist; there are no mistakes in art. As Ken Robinson said. “Human talent is very diverse, but it’s also often buried. You don’t know what you’re capable of unless you get the opportunity to find out.”

Hello  Kathy, I wish you a happy New Year and I am very happy too, because your two boys arrived, one holding a butterfly the other the red bug! I love them! And this time it is really special, because my son studied biology and is a specialist for butterflies! So the two have joined my collection in front of my desk so that I can have a look at them at each time! Be careful and stay healthy! Warm hugs

Hi Kathy, When I opened the mail box yesterday your wonderful black cat envelope just met my eyes! So amazing with a black cat looking out of the dark and then your wonderful antique Halloween portrait in it! Thanks sooo much! Your mail is always so much fun and fantasy! here the November is still friendly and not too cold, so that the tomatoes are still on the balcony and get some sun. I hope you and your beautiful cat are quite well and enjoy cosy evenings!  Best wishes and I will make something for you soon! Hugs and smiles

Hi Kathy, your wonderful ladies in the frame with the great umbrella arrived yesterday! So I hurried and now have finished a card that will come in an envelope because of the silk fabric I used. I hope it does not take too long. The US Mail is not quite safe at the moment, I think. Jack of Cascadia artpost got a card, that I have sent in March just last week!  So warm hugs and best wishes from Germany

Dear Kathy, your Lady with the special hungry pot plant arrived! So delicate with all these open mouths! Your creations are a real miracle! At the moment I am experimenting with a new kind of monotype and so I will send you an example soon!

I hope you are quite well and healthy! Enjoy your garden and do not dig so much!

Hugs Charlotte

Hi Kathy, I had just put a card in the post office for Missouri, when I discovered a new envelope with 4 bathing beauties in my mail-box! Incredible wonderful! Immediately I had to think at the film with Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell where they wear these sexy bathing suits! Thanks so much! Your fantasy is so fascinating, I love it!!!

At the moment I am sewing face masks on end, but I will think about something for you! Stay healthy and creative! And 1000 Thanks (I am always thrilled like a school girl when I discover an envelope of yours in the mail-box) Fat hugs

Dear Kathy, today your magnificent fat little boy with his monkey friends arrived! Your movable mail art is always such fun and joy to me, these small monkeys and the unfriendly looking boy with his claws is such a fantastic combination! Thanks very very much! And you will not believe it, but my brother and I had just such a monkey, that you could pull up with a key and then it jumped to and fro and clapped his instrument. When I opened the envelope and took a look I remembered our old monkey for the first time after long years! So thank you again. I hope you are quite well. Here the weather is wonderful, but much too dry. We have a blue sky since 2-3 weeks and warm temperatures and you can look and see the trees blooming and growing. At monday my husband has to start teaching with half of the class and the the higher classes, that will pass an exam in the summer. It is all rather difficult to manage with this distance problems.

Take care of your self and have some fun! I will send something soon!

Best wishes and hugs

Hi Kathy, Thanks for your news! here in the middle of Germany is everything much quieter. We live near the city and there was always a lot of talking and singing from people coming home from the pubs. Now the nights are really silent and I can sleep very well! my husband war working with his pupils via internet but it was rather special for him because you cannot reach the boys and girls directly and you must have quite a lot of material to present. I am happy that I just not cope with these challenge anymore! But I had to cancel my painting course and so there is a hole in my bag.Stay safe and pay attention! Hugs and smiles
