October 3, 2019: Lisa Iversen (N. Manchester, IN) was in my neck of the woods this past week, and I had the pleasure of meeting up with her.
Yes, Skybridge Studios' own Lisa Iversen was in Minnesota, and we made time to get together. So on Wednesday morning, October 3, we met at Sencha's Tea Bar in Uptown Minneapolis. I think Lisa will agree that we hit it off right from the start! Lisa is a lovely and sweet gal, and I found her easy going. We decided ahead of time to bring some art to exchange, and quite honestly, I made out like a bandit (see photos of my art haul below).
Lisa needs no introduction from me. She is well known within the Eternal Network, having excelled in asemics, vispo, trashpo (among other areas of mail art). Do a google search and you will find a number of blog posts and photographs dedicated to Lisa Iversen's art.
In recent years Lisa has taking time away from m-a, so we really haven't corresponded via the postal system. Our primary interactions have been through Facebook. I was thrilled that Lisa brought along some art from her Skybridge Studios archives. I especially liked the various books she had made for Cheryl Penn's (South Africa) past projects. Clearly, Lisa Iversen is a tremendous talent! I am in awe of her work.
After tea we headed down Hennepin Avenue, and shopped at The Paper Store and Magers & Quinn Booksellers.
To follow are photos of the art (and other goodies) Lisa bestowed on me:

Thanks for all the great art and goodies, Lisa. And thanks for the meetup. Looking forward to seeing you in the mail!
