Ep.48: Chloe Giordano about the art of embroidery and how to live from it

By Iva Mikles •  Updated: Nov 09, 2017 •  Interviews

Chloe is a British artist, illustrator and graphic designer known for her animals embroidered with very fine details, so real that they seem to be sleeping on the canvas.

I began to sew in the last year of my illustration degree at the University of the West of England, and since graduating in 2011 I have continued to experiment with freehand embroidery, using sewing thread and hand dyed fabrics to make my work.

Her clients include Penguin, Vintage Books, Bloomsbury, Liberty, the BFI, and a range of private clients.
