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 Cathy Fiebelkorn of NJ.  Although I do not have a mental illness, my life has been touched by people who cope with various forms of it. Whether they be relatives, friends, co-workers, the middle school students I teach, or the unknown readers of this blog, I care deeply about understanding and supporting them.  I believe very much in the healing power of art—both in making art and in experiencing it, so I am a fan of Broken Light and am pleased to have my work be part of the collective.

About this photo: I shot this image at a local shopping center earlier this spring. What struck me was the wispy zigzag of the clouds in the blue sky and the way the warm sunlight illuminated the balloons. When I look at it, it lifts my spirits, so I hope it might do that for someone else, too.
