Through her company, Forensic Artists of Georgia, Jane Hemmer currently works as a freelance forensic artist for various law enforcement agencies, and believes composite art and facial reconstruction are extremely useful tools in the aid of identifying crime suspects and victims. Her hope is to encourage its employment to the fullest potential as a superior crime fighting tool, and continues training even today.
Academic credentials include a B.S. in Medical Technology from the Medical College of Georgia, graduate work in anthropology at the University of Georgia, and completion of Certified Forensic Artist degree. Her experience in Fine Art Sculpting includes studies at The Florence Academy of Art, Florence, Italy; Cherry Lion Studios, Atlanta; Brookgreen Gardens, Litchfield, South Carolina, and workshops with renowned artist Philippe Fauraut. As with any true artist, she strives to never stop learning about this beautiful art form she loves, and that love shines through in her exquisite pieces.
