These beautiful collaged self portraits come from Russia. I believe all of these young artists are 9 years old. An email quote follows. Thank you very much Aleksandr, Darya, and Ilona. Also thanks you Vitaly, these are a welcome addition to this exhibit.

I am stunned, taken aback, taken in three other directions, over this one! Scott has taken an ordinary Thank You card and transformed it into this masterpiece. I am not even sure which one of these creatures represents him. Maybe all, or maybe none of them. Anyway, thanks to all the faeries, pixies, sprites, aliens, and humans involved.

From the Legendary Ruud Janssen. I love his hand painted envelope. It makes me want to try painting one myself. Check Ruud's 'International Union Of Mail Artists' (IUOMA) in my links section.

This comes from a fellow Edinboro University Student. I get the impression of the multiplicity of selves we each inhabit. Thanks Lucas.
Send him some mail art to make going to his mailbox more fun.

Luiza mentioned that this self portrait was taken the day after she got a gecko. She also included this quote in her email:
"Most of us are living at the periphery of consciousness while intuition invites us into the center."
