Since the late 1980's, I have repeatedly painted portraits of and collaborated with women serving life without parole in Pennsylvania. My goal is to show their depth and humanity through exhibitions and YouTube videos of my developing portraits paired with their voices. 

Currently I am painting ceramic tile mural portraits of female juvenile lifers, to be installed in Philadelphia. Text on the murals describes each case and advertises my website www.juvenilelifers.com where viewers can learn more about her and this crisis so relevant to Philadelphia, where more juveniles are sentenced to life without parole than any city in the United States- over 300.
