I use anatomical and medical imagery as a point of departure to explore these dualities and our ambivalence towards the human body. Viruses, blood, and x-rays of bones and viscera can be at once unsetting and enticing. I often combine scientific images and materials with more domestic or familiar ones.”

Thought Patterns is a series of images inspired by neuroanatomical structures.’

Interesting work investigating aspects of the body and disease using traditional craft materials.
