If you have ever broken your foot, or had brain surgery both which I have had it is not very creative, nor redemable to associate the bone verses matter.

Love the mix of intricate embroidery and sterile x-rays. Also like that one is a snapshot and one takes hours of painstaking work. Really creates a feel of possibilities and what lies beneath.

I love it! So creative.

The foot xray and the embroidered foot is just wonderful as there are so many veils hiding things in life and so many realities.

Odd clash of art and science///

so creepy but weird and cool....

Mixed media and untradition products combined as art and succeeds in the process.

so cool
