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 Annie, a woman living with PTSD, depression, anxiety and a myriad of disorders. Annie also lives with her cat, Zoe, and enjoys drawing, reading and walking in the months that her surrounding landscape permits.

About this photo: “Tick-Tock was named that because it reminds me not only of the insides of a time mechanism, but also of time itself, going in spirals. Sometimes it feels like a tidal wave.

    A “sense of time” is highly individual, especially with PTSD. Interesting post.
