Visit Shauna Richardson’s beautifully crafted, life-size crochet animal sculptures, inspired and informed by natural history.

Crochetdermy® is a term invented by Shauna Richardson to describe her technique. Crochetdermy® translates as Crochet Skin. Crochet: needlework consisting of the interlocking of looped stitches formed with a single thread and hooked needle. Derm: skin.

Part natural history, part anthropology, EVOLUTION of The Artist and The Exhibited Works features family trees, graphs, diagrams and realistic life-size Crochetdermy® animals.

Trophy heads of animals including a bear, lioness and wild boar look down at visitors from the walls, while monkeys and an ‘Evolution’ graphics panel chart the development of Shauna’s work and life as an artist from inherited traits, skills learned and adaptation to environment.
