The great thing about mailart (for me) is the permission it gives me to play and experiment with different ideas and materials. I go through my day in a state of hyper-sensitivity to words and colours, hoping to be inspired. I am now on # 72 of my 365. Where else could I go with cake?
Another mailart fitted into a busy day. A deadline of 30 mins and NO IDEA what I would make. As I looked under the table to select a box of scraps I noticed a magazine and what looked like a face. It turned out to be a Sky magazine promo. Sky turned out to be timeless suspended between art nouveau and the sixties. Fun, fun, fun.
I'm an artist-educator who uses imagery in all that I do, from painting, drawing, print-making and mail art to reflective journals around action research in schools. I believe in creating learning environments that are democratic, and collaborative where we are honest, open and caring.
