Hello, dear posttcrossing-friends, I'm Martina, a german artist. Mutter Maura = Mother Maura is my artist's name. I'm living with my husband in Bavaria, the most beautiful part of Germany. Mostly green hills and blue mountains, hard winters and short, hot summers.
I'm painting landscapes and city views. And I draw and write children's books. Mostly I'm told my books are for adults, too, because of so much details to be seen in the drawings. That's alright for me. :-)
Every year in October I draw cartoons. With funny dragons, or with cats and mouses. Feel free to meet me on my website www.mutter-maura.de or on instagram, muttermaura. Or have a look at my sent--postcards-wall: I only use cards frome my own atelier.
I love being in the nature: Gardening, sketching, swimming, biking or hiking with my dog Tobi. And I love to write cards! In my house stands a large display of postcards, all created by me. It's like a little exhibition of my work. I really love reading the profile of a postcrosser and then go and deliberate: Which motive would he or she like? What kind of picture would suit him or her? And then I choose one and am looking for the moment it will arrive.
In past times I sent every day a postcard to one of my friends or relations. I used to send cards to ill people I heard from. This custom I did learn from a teacher in my childhood: Sending a nice, colourful card every day to someone unhappy. She called this "sending a lifeline", and I used to do so for 30 years.
In the last years postcards seemed to be forgotten. But now I've found postcrossing - I'm so happy! Meeting people appreciating postcards like me - yeah! I love you all. And In the last weeks I got the feeling postcards are coming up again... Some days ago I saw a beautiful display of cards in a great and famous book store. A good sign!
What would you like to send me? Every postcard is welcome and appreciated.
I would enjoy cards of animals, trees, flowers or landscapes. I like dolls and cartoons. Or send me some sightseeing of your city or country. I love handmade or self-painted cards, too.
Tell me something of your life! What do you like, what are you doing today, what do you wish for the future? I'm looking forward getting to know you. Or write me a little poem in your language, with translation - I love poems.
Enjoy life, it's unique! I wish you a wonderful time.
