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 met this beauty on a long walk one day in the spring. She was so powerful, graceful, gentle and majestic. Her strong spirit beckoned me to capture her beauty. Taking pictures of nature has been the one thing that always seems to calm me down. On this day, that calm came in the form of a horse….”

    Beautiful colors and textures in this shot, and yes, being in nature, taking pictures, we can calm the beasts that bother us.

    The pony has unusual markings and the way you processed the photo makes the image soft and innocent. Great image.
