This body of work focuses on women who are in recovery from alcohol who are recovering out loud + proud!

The light was dimmed for these women when they were struggling with alcohol (either a little or a lot).  I wish to honor them for their brave choice to ditch alcohol, rediscover themselves through sobriety + shine bright in the process.  I'm calling this body of artwork The Ray of Light Interview Series: Women in Recovery.  

Starting on the first Friday in January 2017, every Friday I will feature one woman from this evolving series on my blog with a Ray of Light custom portrait + a short interview.  You can click through the interviews that have been posted so far this year below.

A mid-year check-in + update about the project can be found here.

A final post + recap about the year-long project can be found here.
