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 Lisa, a licensed mental health counselor. She believes that we all need a creative outlet to help clear our heads of the occasional “gunk.” For her, it’s photography, and diving. She has a personal blog that contains inspirational and travel photos, as well as a professional blog. Though she is very proud of being licensed counselors for both Alabama and Florida, as well as a Registered Play Therapist and Nationally Certified Counselor, she is most proud of the fact that at the age of 47 she learned to scuba dive and has been an avid diver ever since.

About this photo: “This photograph was taken on a trip to the Bahamas last year, but it could have been taken anywhere there is beach, sand, and water.  I love the sea.  I found this quote and feel that it truly describes me…. ‘The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net forever.’”

    I think the sea cast its spell on me in two ways: growing up near Lake Michigan ( know that’s a lake, but it looks pretty large), and through the book Open Boat by Stephen Crane, which I had to read in high school. And this picture bought the lonely haunted desolate beautiful feeling back to me.
