Artsy penpal wanted!


Hi folks! 

(I have posted a message on here before, but my picture wouldn’t load, so I’d like to redo it.)

I am Sarah, a 17-year-old fine arts student from a tiny country in Europe, called Belgium. To introduce myself, here’s a little list of information  you might want to know about me: (I’m not quite good at doing things like this)

Languages I speak: I speak Dutch, English and a little bit of French, since our country is bilingual (not sure if that’s a correct word). 

Email/Tumblr: My e-mail address is and my tumblr is mxkonos.

Art: David Hockney, Basquiat, Keith Haring, Marlene Dumas, Roger Raveel, Andy Warhol, Hundertwasser, Klimt, Egon Schiele, Ellsworth Kelly, and tons more!

Books: I like books about art, true stories or biographies of musicians and artists. Some examples of what I’ve read are Andy Warhol, Zero Zero Zero, Into the Wild, etc. One of my favourite writers is Herman Brusselmans, he’s Belgian and writes about everyday life in a vulgar way, but it’s nice though! 

music I like: The Smiths, The Cure, Soft Cell, Duran Duran, Eurythmics, Depeche Mode, Lorde, OMD, Bronski Beat, New Order, Kraftwerk, Die Antwoord, Falco, Radiohead, Marilyn Manson (!), Culture Club, Tears for Fears, Lou Reed, The Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Boy George, Moderat, Gesaffelstein, Michael Jackson, Nirvana, Simon and Garfunkel, Apocalyptica, Metallica, Gojira, Lana del Rey, Amy Winehouse, Anne Clark, Beirut, Einsturzende Nuebauten, System of a down, and many many more!  To make it short: I mostly like older music. 

Other interests: Art, definitely. I am very dedicated to it. So it would be great to find someone to talk to who is just as passionate and serious about art. I’m also a writer and a cello-player. Actually, I am interested in so many things that I just can’t make a list of it! 🙂 

What I would like in a Buddy (age, location, language, gender): I would like a penpal between 17-21, but if you are able to impress me I can always make an exception! You can live anywhere on this planet 🙂 Sorry boys, but I would rather like a girl to talk to. If you speak English, it would be great!

Preferred method of contact: It would be great if you first contact me through Tumblr or e-mail to then snail mail.

Trading drawings or photography or anything to do with art would be a lovely thing to do! Just writing is also cool, but a little artistic touch makes it all even better. 

Hope to find my future penpal on here 🙂 Don’t hesitate to send me a message, it will definitely make my day! ♥
