Image gallery - HEALING

These embroidery/print works were exhibited in the recent TANGIBLE exhibition at PontArte Maastricht.

The transfer prints featuring in the works are images from an MRI scan of my brain, done as part of the medical investigations into what turned out to be Long Covid.

I got drawn to embroidery because it is something I am able to do while I recover my health and also because of its calming, meditative effect. I've become very interested in neuroplasticity because an important part of my recovery is to "rewire" the dysfunctions in my autonomous nervous system. The therapeutic effects of needlework have been known for a long time and thanks to modern imaging technology we can now see that it can actually change the brain.
