Artifax collage

My friend Anne had no idea what she was in for when she asked me to teach a collage class at Artifax, the wonderful international hand crafts shop she owns in Milford. The mess that is forever following me in all my endeavors took over the back half of the shop on Friday night, while we made art and a few curious shoppers picked there way over buckets of water and piles of paper.

Here is Anne and her daughter Aimee very engrossed in the process of chaos-making, which is of primary importance to every kind of art I do, mostly because I simply can't avoid it.
