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: “On a recent visit to the John Hancock Tower in Chicago where I live, I captured this image of the shadows of the buildings. I loved the way the buildings cast their shadows over the lake and I related to the visual imagery of having two sides. One light and one dark…I also recently had someone ask me, “What exactly does being your friend mean? You’re so all over the place it’s hard to know. Do you even know?

    Interesting photo, love the shadows…. oh, and about that question, is n’t that for the person to ask themselves? Being there for you (unquestioning) is being a friend
