Who we are & why we are

Welcome to the gallery site of Broken Light Collective. We are artists of all levels and abilities who are affected by mental illness. We create and we share our work for the therapeutic benefits to us, as well as others who may be struggling and feeling scared and alone. Together we can move from disconnected to collective.

Photo taken by Rainey, a depression sufferer. This picture is of a daisy bathed in the glow of recent rains. I love the simple beauty of a daisy; it is often overlooked for more flashy flowers, but the daisy is a long-lasting hardy beauty. This photo makes me feel hopeful. I know if I can outlast the ravages of my current bout of depression, I will see and feel the beauty around me again. I have this picture hanging on my wall to remind me that there is still beauty out there…somewhere.

    You’re right. Daisies are often overlooked. But there’s beauty in so many things if we just bother looking closely enough to see it.
