"...It has been almost two years since I went to the Lois Gibson's class and I have to say that since I met her I discover a real new
experience in the forensic art field; I'm a forensic artist too but I have to recognize that I was many miles away before I learned from
Lois teachings. Anyway since I came to Mexico from Lois class and I begun to apply her teachings to my daily work, everything
changes and I do my work better since then. For me, Lois Gibson is the best forensic artist on the planet, she has a lot of experience
in what she is doing and I also have to mention that she has a lot of patience teaching. Finally she is wonderful as a person so I
consider her one of my best friends..."

"...I learned so much that I can say without hesitation that Lois' class is the best class of it's kind available anywhere,
period. Every aspect of forensic sketching was covered and yet was taught in such a user friendly way that my retention level
of the material was very high. The class was a riveting 40 hours of wall to wall information that I didn't want to end..."

"...Thought I'd check in with you, and let you know that to date I have done eight composites for my community. The work has
all the rewards and challenges you told our class to expect. My services have been most welcome with the Sheriff's Office and
the city police department. My confidence in my own work continues to grow with each interview. I can't imagine ever doing this
without your instructions and support. Thank you again and again..."

"...Your class has meant more to me than I can express. The content and value of the information I gained this week is beyond
measure. The impact of your contribution to this field, along with your passion and humanity, is a gift to us all..."

"You are not going to believe it. Two weeks ago my grandson was nearly car jacked, and on top of that the creep pulled a gun
and threatened to shoot him. He called the police and filed a report, but without more, they didn't see much they would be able
to do. Well, he came home and told me, and remembering your methods I said, 'Could you describe him, and I will draw a composite?'
We took it down to the police department and turned it over to the detective in charge of car jackings; he almost passed out. As it
turns out, the guy is a gang leader here and very dangerous. His rap sheet is about three feet long, and the best part is the
composite I drew looked like I had taken a photograph when I saw the real photo. Now the detective wants to give me a job......Thank
you so much for your training. Oh yes, this was not only my first creep to capture, it was my first composite too..."

"...thanks for the confidence you have given me with my talent....I was called to do a drawing involving a child enticement. I
did a drawing and TODAY, I walked into work, and the whole detective bureau was all over the drawing. Because of my sketch, we had a
telephone call identifying the suspect, the detectives did a photo lineup and he was picked out of the lineup by 4 different
witnesses. So, based on my sketch, we found the suspect. It was absolutely remarkable how much the drawing looked like the suspect,
so basically one drawing, one hit, I am just thrilled, and with the tools you have given me, I am sure I will be successful with this..."

"...Last night I had my first job doing a forensic sketch. I was thinking about you the whole time and every time I got nervous,
something you said would pop into my head and I was able to use your advice. Thank you so much for teaching me these skills..."
