snail mail project

in winter of 2019, i began a snail mail letter and art project. this project is sent 3-4 times per year and includes a letter and an accompany visual artwork.

 

in the age of technology and the time of screens, i believe it is important as ever to share handmade art, to feel the texture of a page or an object in our hands and to know that page or object was held in the hands of someone else. 

the letters included could be described as an interior. an offering of what has been on my mind and heart as a maker and a human, and a sharing of the writers, filmmakers, musicians and artists who have been informing me and my practice. 

each time the visual art element is unique from the last. sometimes it's a painting that is cut into smaller pieces to share with each person on my mailing list. sometimes it's a grief object in the form of poem cards. sometimes  it's photographs covered in paint which can be scratched off to reveal the image.

at present, there are 55 people from 14 states and 2 countries who receive this project.
