Hi, I'm a 50 year old Engineer/Artist/Gardener. I'm new to mailart, but I have been a Mixed Media Artist/Printmaker for many years. I started making Garbage Art collages from Dumpster-finds, when my Husband became TOO successful a Dumpster Diver. The whole family is serious about Resource Rescue, Re-cycling, and Artistic Re-use of our precious resources. My husband makes his own bicycles out of dumpster-rescued materials ( including trashed bike frames!)
I love Art, Architecture, Graphic Design, Color, Science-Fiction, Gardening, Nature, Wildlife, Hiking, and Bicycling. I would love to get something in the mail that you made yourself with recycled materials.
Please send me some of YOUR art, or some Art or Architecture from your country or culture. Thanks so much! If you would like me to send a thank-you garbage art collage postcard back to you, include a return address, and let me know your wishes.
I post scans of the fun art postcards I send out on: www.flickr.com/photos/dumpsterdiversanonymous
