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 Bipolar On Fire, a woman in her forties from Boulder, Colorado, who suffers from severe depression, bipolar disorder, and fibromyalgia. She passionately loves photography, writing, music, and her many other creative artistic endeavors. Her aim in life is to create beauty and bring joy to the lives of others through her creations and words.

About this photo: “I’ve come to Florida for the winter to try to stave off the winter blues. Although I am very lonely without my family and friends around me, I am trying to adjust. Going to the beach and walking in the water barefoot is a special kind of therapy for me. I try to do it every day.”
