Miniature Embroidered Portraits

Knitting, paper quilling, and other traditional forms of craftsmanship have seen a resurgence in recent years. South African based artist Danielle Clough embroiders miniature portraits from black and white photos. The once flat photos come to life as multi-colored thread illustrations. Clough’s pieces show the many ways that crafts that were once thought of as “old-fashioned” are having their moment in the artistic spotlight. More examples of Clough’s work can be seen on her website and Instagram account.
