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.

Please welcome first-time contributor Saro Anne, a 36-year-old wife, mother and poet who has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, bulimia, generalized anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. She uses the power of language to break down the barriers that her diagnoses have built up over the course of her lifetime.

About these photos: “I took these photos of my 4 year old daughter because she is my lodestone. In these pictures, she is a fairy, but in some shots sports a mustache. I want her to defy conventions, a cultural iconoclast secure in her worth, needing validation from none. We took some shots in our backyard atop the castle chicken coop and some at an abandoned restaurant with a classical Greek courtyard.”

Saro Anne can be found on Google + under “Saro Anne.”
