There's always mail art....

Almost every day I get some wonderful little surprise in the mail.  The most recent was from Cuan Miles in South Africa.   He is a cartoonist with a South African newspaper.

Butterfly Mind - Cuan Miles
I LOVE this collage,  You can see more of his work here:

Terrie Purkey of the USA is another friend who sends me delightful collages every so often.  She has an insatiable appetite for learning more about art, and is constantly doing workshops to that end.  Over the time I've known her, her work has really grown in depth and execution.

Enchanted Bird - Terrie Purkey

Open Hearts - Terrie Purkey

....and ATCs arrive more often than anything else....

Lisa  Weber - South Africa

Cathy Calamas - USA

Pam Prosser - Australia

Marion Bockelmann - Germany

Pattie McClimans -  USA

Soon my collages from the International Collage Exchange will be here.  I look forward to sharing them with you.

  6. Lucky you must have a wonderful collection of mail.
    I once asked my postal carrier if she minded carrying all the mail art people sent me. She said, not in the least. She confessed to actually pulling it out for others along the route to see!
    Happy week to you, Jo.
