"I created these plates for the ‘Eat Your Heart Out’ event at St. Batholomew’s Hospital Pathology Museum, London in October 2012. My colleague at Cambridge University, Michelle Spear, Clinical Anatomist (originally a Histologist) provided the original images for these plates. She prepared slides of various human tissues, stained and scanned them for me for this project. The plates are 20cm diameter bone china cake plates, available in 8 different human tissue designs: Thyroid, Bowel, liver, Bone, Pancreas, Oesophagus, Testicle, Kidney."

"I created this drawing ‘Memento Mori II’ for an exhibition in Chicago in Feb 2013 called ‘Dissecting Art, Intersecting Anatomy’ at the Museum of Surgical Science. This pencil drawing is based on the mexican Day of the Dead tradition of depicting the beautiful woman (Catrina) as a skull, representing the fact that death comes to us all, rich, poor or beautiful."

"I designed these necklaces for an ‘Anatomical Heart Valentines Day Pop Up Shop’ I co-curated in London 2013. These sterling silver anatomical heart necklaces come in either blood red enamel or grey oxidised colours." Heart Necklace (© Emily Evans)
"After so much amazing feedback from the wallpaper I made for the Barrio bar chain in London, I’ve released this new improved design available for purchase. The elegant design of the Sugar Skull is representative of the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations, where this folkloric skull is a ‘Memento Mori’ and has become an iconic symbol of life and death.
In this unique wallpaper, the intricately illustrated skull has been given a sophisticated twist by replicating it in gold on a rich matt dark charcoal, making it a luxurious addition to any interior." Anatomy Boutique Skull Wallpaper (© Emily Evans)
"I made this illustration and subsequent screen print for an exhibition in Chicago in 2012 called ‘Objectify This’ curated by Street Anatomy. The theme of the exhibition focused on the objectification of women through anatomical art." Reflections of Beauty (© Emily Evans)
"This is one of my pieces from the group stone carving exhibition I had in the crypt of St. Pancras Church in 2011: ‘Still Life’ is made from a piece of Rouge de Vitroilles Marble given to me by the stone carver Emily Young." Stone Heart (© Emily Evans)
