I belong to the International Union of Mail Artists (iuoma-network.ning.com/) and send and receive mail art almost every day. I have “met” so many creative people through this process. And I love doing the art itself – somehow it isn’t as serious in intent, so it’s very easy to experiment and try things I might not otherwise do. Also, I’m working on a smaller scale – there isn’t that feeling of intimidation that sometimes happens with larger pieces.
Here are some postcards that will go out soon.
It is a pleasure to mail art to someone who is really happy to get it, and tells me so by sending me art in return.
