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: “It’s amazing to me how nature and animals can really sooth my soul when I feel tumultuous inside. Getting outside and experiencing the wonders of this beautiful world makes all the difference for me even on dark my days. These horses actually made me laugh because they had such personalities!”
