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.

Traveling has always been challenging but I still dream of doing it like I imagine most people do without making it so complicated. Drive someplace, drive home. I tell myself it shouldn’t be that hard, I’m overthinking it, but for me it’s a huge challenge that I avoid. Of course avoiding challenges is worse than facing them. Let me write that down…”
