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.

Spread Your Wings

Photo taken by Rainey who suffers from severe depression, and has a daughter with bipolar disorder. Every day is a struggle for both of them.

About this photo: “This photograph was taken while I was traveling along the coast last summer. I use my camera to seek beauty in the world. I love this image because it reminds me that I am much like a butterfly; fragile yet beautiful, and able to grow and change as I fly toward a better life.”

    Butterfly, a metamorphosis… it was in a cocoon of depression and once you come out, off you… free and beautiful.

    Beautiful butterfly — When you see a butterfly it means, “Hope for the future.” God’s way of giving you encouragement! Seek God and learn deliverance.
    May you have a Blessed New Year!
