After getting sober from a crystal meth addiction at the age of 18, ( August 18th, 1987 ) Catherine has been using photography and the arts as a tool for transformation and offers this approach to others seeking to find new ways of living without drugs and alcohol. She’s currently working on a book of portraits of high profile Actors, Rockstars, Directors, Comedians, Artists, Poets, Dancers, etc.. who happen to be sober. Through Portraits and Interviews this book offers hope to the addict who still suffers.
