As part of our image of the month series, this month’s featured artist is Paul Brian Tovey.

Paul is an adoptee who was abused by his adoptive parents, and now campaigns for adoptees to be able to revert back to their birth identities as a legal right.

Channeling his pain through his art, Paul’s drawings are unique, poignant and very beautiful.

The featured image on Researching Reform’s banner is called Going Home Key, but we are also adding a gallery of several other paintings by Paul, below.
