PROTESTS: THE GRANNY PEACE BRIGADE

and OCCUPY WALL STREET

I’ve been documenting the feisty Granny Peace Brigade

for the past six years, photographing and drawing

as I march with them. Since October 2011, I have done

the same with the Occupy Wall Street movement, 

The resulting studio paintings bear witness to the power

of social activism, and pay homage to these and other

courageous citizens who exemplify democracy in action.
