Histology Art by Penny Oliver
Penny Oliver captures the beauty and breadth of the human body, particularly histology, through artistic interpretation. She creates works of art that are beautiful to the layperson and meaningful to the medical professional.
Often sterile images are transformed into exhibitions emphasizing that we are made of patterns, designs, colors and processes.
Her art, based on a tiny snapshot of something inside us, defines us. It contains truth. The art is you!

Personally, I love the artwork “Canals of Havers" and "Clear Cell Adenocarcinoma" - they would look amazing in my office at work!
The histology art shown here:
"Canal of Havers" - a section of compact bone with osteocytes in lacunae (upper panel).
“Endometrial Hyperplasia” - endometrial glands and stroma (middle panel; left)
"Malignant Struma Ovarii" - the ovary, containing follicles and thyroid tissue (middle panel; center)
"Clear Cell Adenocarcinoma" - a beautiful flowing water-like depiction of the disease (middle panel; right)
"Organ of Corti" - hair cells within the cochlea (lower panel)
