Le Marché au Bugue

For the last 3 years we've been working hard on the French Project. You can see the results on my other blog here.I did this mixed media collage back in 1995. I used to make a lot of work like this and did very well selling them as framed pieces in The Conran Shop and UK galleries. It was a drawing of the lively Le Bugue Market near to where our place is. I had a sketchbook with me for all my travels and collected tickets, labels, receipts etc. along the way. Printed, painted, collaged together with my own handmade papers and ones bought in India and all machine stitched using freehand embroidery. I just don't have the time to make them anymore, but maybe one day.......
