Anatomical embroidery: inner ear with cochlea



Each anatomical embroidery I do is on an 8 or 9 inch embroidery hoop and each image is anatomically correct and done by hand as I work from a range of medical books and dissection manuals to get the details spot on. This means I can study the texture of the organs on which I’m working to try to replicate them in the stitching. Each hoop is worked with a mix of satin stitches, couching and French knots on calico, depending on the organs I am interpreting, and the backs of the hoops are covered with a complimentary colour of felt. Each hoop takes up to three months to create and it’s a process that begins with basic colours upon which I build up the shading and other details.

I take commissions, of course, so am open and willing to all sorts of suggestions. So far my work has been bought by surgeons and other clinicians so I must be doing something right!

If you have any ideas or questions please contact me at where we can discuss your requirements. No question is too daft and I’m happy to help i you need guidance in choosing an image too.
