Art and creativity inspired by Anatomy and Science

Laura Katherine McMillan

The embroidered ‘Cell Series’ by Laura Katherine McMillan are Machine and Hand Embroidery in Petri Dishes. She says;

‘I began this series of embroideries as a way to fuse my background studies in anatomy and kinesiology with my passion for textile art.  Revisiting old text books brought back not just information I would have to memorize for its function but a wealth of beautiful imagery.  I began to see the cells as a series of intricate textures and shapes.  
Creating this series made me think about how our view of something as merely functional can overshadow its inherent beauty.’
