This collection stems from my Grandfather. When I was a little girl, I would listen to stories about his career as a decorated FBI agent. He taught me all the tactics they would use to capture their most wanted. I was fascinated by the profiling, forensics, and most of all fingerprinting. I would trace my hand and add the little swirls mimicikng individual fingerprints. I took my doodles and made them pop by adding gold gilding to popular sign language expressions.
