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: “It’s been awhile since I’ve submitted because I’ve been going through a rough patch. While I was reluctant to even shoot feeling down, the cross shaped pier and the sun setting and the end couldn’t be ignored. Later when I viewed the shot, it was the perfect reminder that for me to stay healthy, I need to stay rooted in my photography, my family, my faith and in nature.”

    I love the cross formation of the pier. I would be dead if I didn’t trust in my Savior, even though I do go through sensory and anxiety challenges that push me to the brink. I have peace in knowing that when the sun sets on my life, I will be in heaven with my believing loved ones. Sunsets are one of my favorite things to photograph, especially in the winter.
