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: “Living with BP means being on a continuous cycle. One that will never go away…

The round and round cycles of high to low is something people with Bipolar need to learn how to manage. 

For me, it meant finding the right gear to ride in at various times of the cycles.

i.e. (the right mix of meds, awesome therapist, shooting photos, writing and exercising.) 

Today, my cycles are a much smoother ride…”
