From birth, we’re hard-wired to look for faces. We search to recognize a face we know in a crowd of strangers and see faces in inanimate objects. I’m fascinated by how much a change in proportion or placement of a feature renders a familiar face unrecognizable.
I was a police and fire dispatcher for ten years before becoming a police officer for the city of Kent Washington in 1994. While employed at Kent, I trained as a forensic artist and started doing drawings for my agency and surrounding agencies in 1999. I retired from Kent PD in 2004 and became a freelance forensic artist.
Through my agency and on my own, I sought to advance my skills and learn different forensic art specialties. Most of my work is now digital.
