Danielle Clough (previously) is a talented textile artist based in Cape Town, South Africa. She is passionate about embroidery and leads her works further by “painting” gorgeous figures with threads and sewing on unusual places, such as tennis rackets, shoes, and wire fences.
Motivation and inspiration are two very different forces in my work, and are not mutually exclusive. I’m often motivated by boredom. Apparently I suffer from ‘ADS’ – always doing something. Inspiration comes from finding new materials to use: strange color palettes, conversations with good company and so on. Inspiration keeps me stitching through the times that I lack motivation, and vice-versa.Danielle Clough
