Founded in 1994, the American Association of Anthropological Genetics (AAAG) is an educational and scientific organization whose mission is: to promote the study of anthropological genetics, as this field is broadly defined; to facilitate communication between individuals engaged in the study of anthropological genetics; and to foster cooperation among anthropological geneticists.
This site was developed out of the love of forensic art. The website touches on the various facets of forensic art, giving a brief description of each. Take time to view the various pages and contact me if you have any questions regarding a specific issue or on forensic art in general. Forensic Artists provide many services including composite drawing, three dimensional facial reconstruction, two-dimensional facial reconstruction, decomposition/post-mortem sketches and computer enhanced reconstructions, computer and hand-drawn image-enhancement and age progression. Other tasks include hand drawn and computer generated crime scenes, charts and graphs, assemblage of photo lineups, etc. Hopefully this page will help coordinate the needs of the law enforcement community, with the services that an adequately trained forensic artist can provide. In addition, the site is used as a means for fellow artists to communicate and swap ideas with each other.
