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 depression, PTSD, anxiety, and dissociative disorder. Annie enjoys reading, writing, music and walking when the weather is friendly.

About this photo: “Gone. But Zoe will never be forgotten. There are times in our lives when we have to say good bye forever. Zoe was my feline companion for a mere 4 1/2 years. More than a companion she was a therapy cat. She comforted me in sadness, helped me through sickness, made me laugh when depression came knocking.  She was all I had. And now alone…emptiness. Her death is a reminder to me that everything is impermanent.  That life itself can be gone in an instant.

Always and forever in my heart, my little friend.”
