In an effort to recenter narratives around police terror toward the families impacted by racist & deadly police practices, since 2014 I've been painting portraits of parents whose children have been murdered by the police. This series will be complete when the police stop killing people. Until then I believe we must learn the true history of policing & collaborate in our communities to make the police obsolete.
