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 post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety and a myriad of other disorders. Annie lives with her feline companion, Zoe. Her coping tools include meditation, art, writing, and petting Zoe.

About this photo: “Lately, my mind has been racing. Some days I simply cannot stop. Sleep is growing thin. It feels as if all of the inner neurons, the synapses, are wired! This photograph of a tree, represents all of that and more to me. It’s not only the stark nakedness, aloneness, but also growth, and reaching out even when I would rather curl up into my shell.
