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 find that I really need to make sure that I’m taking good care of myself in the winter months when the sun is scarce and the nights are cold. It’s so easy to stay in my house, in bed, under my covers, just hibernating. But, I know that’s bad for my moods and my mental health. Getting out of the house to snap a few pics on a rainy day can help to brighten my mood.

    That is a beautiful image! I think your understanding about the winter months is true for many people – get out, even in the may weather, and focus on creating something.

    I love this photo. I relate to it not only for its beauty — but also because it’s a rainy day here in Boston.
