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: “Going Nowhere is that feeling of being stuck. Of having the doors to walk through and not being able to because of anxiety, fear, because I do not know where to go or what lies ahead.

    This is a stunning picture. What makes it so very, very good is how accessible it is…I, or anyone, have been in such a place a thousand times and could have–but did not–take that image. Only you did and so took a common place scene and elevated it to high art. Damn, but that’s good work!
