Artist Statement Submitted 2019

I paint portraits, specifically in black and white, to reflect my sitter's state of mind under the influence of either alcohol, drugs or both. The people I depict can function, sometimes are successful, but regret and doubt is the ultimate by-product of a destructive lifestyle. I want to paint what this looks like, since I see it everywhere. Regardless what we are taught, sobriety is illusive as a circumstantial way of life.
