As witness to OJ Simpson‘s not guilty verdict, Michael Jackson‘s acquittal, Winona Ryder‘s shoplifting fall from grace and Lindsay Lohan‘s frequent brushes with the law, one woman has seen it all. Hollywood courtroom artist Mona Shafer Edwards has spent the last thirty years in the company of actors and pop stars facing the full arm of the law and using her artistic skills to bring trials to life. Recording moments such as Paris Hilton‘s sentencing for parole violation in 2007, to Steven Spielberg‘s appearance in the witness stand in 1998 as he testified against his stalker, Mona’s sketches have kept her centuries-old art alive. Her drawings have been collected into a book of her life’s work in the courts of Los Angeles called Captured! Inside the World of Celebrity Trials.
