As part of our image of the month series, we are continuing to feature artist and adoptee Paul Brian Tovey’s deeply moving drawings.

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

Paul uses his art to channel and process his pain, and in doing so creates emotionally powerful canvases.

The featured image on Researching Reform’s banner is called Going Home: The Istol Fire Lion Talk.

Thank you to Paul for allowing Researching Reform to showcase his art.
