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.

Kane Creek

Photo taken by Lisa Day, a woman who lives with anxiety disorder, PTSD, depressive disorder and mild bipolar. She recalls being ‘melancholy’ for most of her life, but things progressively got worse until she felt suicide was her only solution. The very night she planned her “great escape” she was contacted by the father of a friend and he changed her life. They eventually married but she still has terrible ups and downs. She keeps him constantly looking for creative ways to help and she believes she would not be here without him. One of the things he has really encouraged her to do is take photographs and to write. She has four blogs….including one dedicated to her photography and another dedicated to surviving her mind.”

About this photo: “This shot is just of a rock wall at Kane Creek in Moab Utah where I now live. I love the way time has left behind holes that were created by a constant sweeping of the wind….I love the layers of time left behind in the layers of rock much like the rings on a tree.
