Recovery is about the journey not about a specific end.  Whilst exploring recovery, I chose layers of white on white to symbolise someone who has gone through a war, a war with their mind, as opposed to white conveying 'angel' or 'pure'. They have scars physically, mentally, and emotionally.  The white subtle textures, from the beading to the handmade flowers, channel the notion that some mental disorder cases will never be 'cured'.  Some days the disorder will resurface. However, with tools and coping strategies learnt in recovery, the disorder can be kept to a minimal.
