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.

Please say a warm hello to first-time contributor Jacque who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and ADHD. She is a graphic designer, wife, and mother to two boys. She is learning to draw from God’s strength to get her through every day. She has also found art and music to be great healers and outlets for the soul.

About this photo: “My photo ‘clouds in my coffee’ is an image I created to symbolize my mania and my emotions.

Find more from Jacque at her blog.

    I don’t have mania but I do have depression. I can relate to all the shadows.

    I like your photograph and Christian outlook. We Christians know the truth of needing God in order to survive life’s trials. I like the edit, the dreamy warm colors surrounding the cup and the clouds. 🙂
