Who Is Lois Gibson:

Lois Gibson is recorded in The Guinness Book of World Records as "The World's Most Successful Forensic Artist." Her sketches have helped law enforcement identify more than 751 criminals. She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honors and the FBI Academy Forensic Artist Course.

She teaches this profession at The Institute of Forensic Art in Houston, Texas. Her focus is to help as many artists as possible to become forensic art professionals before she retires. Her unique five-day class gives students everything they need to enter the forensic art profession.

Her near-death experience as the victim of a serial rapist/killer fuels her passion for catching criminals. She has received numerous awards for stopping violent offenders and getting justice for innocent victims.
