was a dull Sunday afternoon in January, 1999. Surfing on the internet,
I was looking for some letter fonts that I needed for a project.
And then it happened. Out of the blue the word mailart popped
up on my computer screen. Never heard of it before, but I was
intrigued. Jumping from link to link a world unfolded before my
eyes. The international world of mailart.
weeks later I decided to give it a try. I made up a so called
mailart name, ZenaZero and posted my first mailart call The Secret
Life of a Mermaid on one of the message boards on the internet.
A few days later a small miracle happened. Since that day my mailbox
was filled with colourful cards, letters and small boxes containing
the most wonderful pieces of paper art.
the next years many mailart projects followed.
I initiated quite a few myself and also responded to the calls
of other mailartists.
It was a wonderful period.

work made for different mailart projects.
