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 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: “I loved the colors of this abandoned boat and related to the visual metaphor it created. Living with Bipolar Disorder, I have felt very isolated at times. Sharing images on BLC has helped me to let go and let my colors shine through, and to be able to use my creative talents to help others who have similar mental health issues. By sharing, we can get off of our shipwreck islands and sail into new waters together…”
