South Africa-born “fibre artist” Danielle Clough quit her job to become a full-time artist creating incredible pieces of art out of embroidery.
Speaking to Cape Talks Kieno Kammies, Clough says she has a background in fashion designing and photography and believes what she is doing now is as a result of the different disciplines she was involved in.
I think the understanding comes from the different disciplines that I've been involved in over the years. Nothing goes to waste.— Danielle Clough, artist
All these things that you did over time, they kind of piece together and give you an umbrella understanding.— Danielle Clough, artist
Sometimes the subjects are commisioned, given to me through the projects, but very often I just see something that I really love or somebody, they emanate something and I just want to indulge.— Danielle Clough, artist
