About Eve Grant

Eve retired from a 21 year career with the Baltimore County Police Department in Maryland as a detective (HQ) and certified forensic artist.

Eve's art training is highly specialized and consists of skeletal facial reconstructions and drawing post mortem images of the deceased in order to gain an identification.  She also drew composite sketches of suspects described by victims and witnesses of crime.  Eve's art training has been throughout the country to include the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, conferences held yearly by the International Association for Identification, courses held by the Michigan State Police and in specialized courses at several Universities in Florida, Oklahoma and Arizona just to name a few.  Eve continues to lecture about Forensic Art at morgues and to Towson University's anthropology and criminal justice students.

Eve continues to volunteer her forensic services to police departments and morgues around the country through a program called NaMUS (National Missing and Unidentified Persons System).  In addition, Eve's art has been utilized for historical preservations after human remains have been recovered by anthropologists in mass graves and has been featured in several documentaries.  Eve is transitioning into helping the living by using her talents to tattoo so she can identify remains faster (kidding!)
