My Accurately-Embroidered Models Of Humans And Animals (New Pics)

Forget florals. Embroidery first came to life for me when I realized I could use it to replicate the human body.

Nothing is as fascinating, exciting, and challenging as human anatomy and single-stranded stitches are perfect for accurately rendering its colors and textures. In fact, in each of my specialist pieces, I only ever use satin stitch, split stitch, French knots, and couching, all basic stitches in embroidery!

I started stitching after having extensive facial surgery which you can read about in my previous post. You can also check out some of my earlier anatomical pieces and find out how I stitch them. Scroll down, though, to see my latest pieces, some of which have already been bought by medics and surgeons across the world.

A Heart

Hand-embroidered lungs on a 10-inch hoop

Each piece contains many shades of the same color

False color brings pieces to life and defines specific parts of the anatomy

Anatomical embroidered eyeball

Esophagus and a stomach

Larynx

Ear canal

My rendering of a brain stem was bought as a gift for a neuroscientist

An ulcerated colon

This hand was created on a six-inch hoop with only two types of stitches

Breast

Uterus

My piece of the female urinary system. Took almost 70 hours

I study and dissect organs to help me recreate textures. Yellow French knots are perfect for body fat!

I also do muscle systems

This piece was commissioned by a vet and took three months to complete

Choosing the correct shades as well as stitch direction is tricky, but worth it

Woman, you are a Black Belt in this, so off mainstream, embroidery!! All that different tissue structures are perfectly reproduced. I also would like to see the endless shades of your collection of threads . Millions thumbs up!!

I thought I was a half-decent embroiderer, but this is something else entirely!

these are absolutely amazing, freehand embroidery is like wizardry to me anyway but the way you blend the colors is phenomenal!

Thank you so much! If it's any help there is always a point during each piece when I think I have ruined the whole thing. The trick is to have faith and work through it until it comes good.
