You could say Danielle Clough paints with threads. She is an accomplished fiber artist whose much larger works show incredible depth, texture and color. Her embroidered art pendants though were her "attempt at disciplining myself to work small." It is demanding to render the same kind of details to smaller subjects. As you can see from this selection of my favorites, she succeeds.
The animals are all adorable but her portraits are particularly stunning. Danielle is from South Africa particularly interested in visual art, music and South African street culture scene. She is an accomplished photographer and also creates visuals for live music events - a visual jockey. She said "As a photographer-designer-vj-embroiderer, she has lived a life forever bound to the hyphen." Nothing wrong with that. In fact, a multi-faceted life enriches the artist.
