Courtroom artist: Brigitte Woosley

25 Apr

She’s front and center in the courtroom where the Texas polygamist hearings are being held. It’s pretty rare to actually see the artist behind these sketches, they’re so behind the scenes. So what do we know about this woman? According to her bio, 1976 to present: Courtroom Broadcasting Artist and freelance Illustrator working as courtroom artist for national and international broadcast news agencies illustrating noteworthy trials including the Oprah Trial, Waco, Oklahoma City Bombing, Selena Murder Trial and many others for ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, Fox News, the BBC, SIN Television, Germany, Telemundo, API, Reuters as well as local television and newspapers.

Quite a resume, and a very successful artist.

Child custody hearings for the children taken from the Yearning for Zion ranch in Eldorado, Texas, began Thursday.

    Neat! It’s not very often we get to see the people behind the scenes who do all the work yet don’t get the recognition.
