A Deep Love for Creative Expression and Artistic Exploration

Creating imagery for me is a visual journey,
a way to explore & express hidden stories, emotions, visions & soul-dreams. I am sparked by the Experimental , Explorative and intuitive side of things. Every experience teaches me..it shapes me and calls me toward something invisibly new.

Poems seeking light

A Natural draw to the artistic & experimental side of things

Sparked by an Explorative and curious nature; I love the Experimental & Intuitive side of creativity. Creation is always awake, it lives uncaged and free, no rules to follow, only new seeds to explore.
I love all that is unusual & mysterious. I find connection & meaning in all that is imperfect, poetic and beautiful. I am drawn to the unseen, the ethereal, soulful essence of both light & dark, the spirit of nature, the seasons of transformation, patterns of creation and finding hidden magic in ordinary things.

Dreamy-Artistic Still-Life






















Still Life 
can be dreamy & magical 
to experiment with
as well as natural sunlit patterns
that drape across the scene
like tiny poems






This series was created
 last year for a collaborative project.







Thanks for visiting...

beneath the storm of strings, a song conjuring








Beneath the storm of strings ~ A Song Conjuring
*


Beneath a wilderness of winds
dreams burning, seeds bending 
 trees blurring in the storm 
tossing songs and wolves upon the water
 sounding Autumn's solemn bell 
casting a mist of wounds and words
a trail of golden cups and broken birds 
spinning through her eyes


strings and sounds , spilling open 
a collision of memories and braided roots
tangled swans are pierced with arrows
of dying bark and knotted poems
 weathered jewels and drowning bones
she holds them all ....in her shining hands
as winter's spirit falls away


Moonlight swallows the feathers and leaves
maiden of Breath begins to surface
crossing through the sunlit veils
letting go the ancient seam
in her arms of wood and metal threads
dying flowers rise from the dirt
 to heal and resurrect
to ignite thunderous lullabyes
and to invoke a storm
of love letters, lost time and forgotten dreams


a single tear  of summer swam
across the hidden forest of strings
into a quiet story buried deep behind 
the sword in her heart
a song woven through the sweet darkness
and conjuring the remaining light left within her
carrying soft white mythical wings
 a wild spirit
pulsing with new hope
for a songstress
waking herself from the whirling dust
and summoning her true freedom
~victoria pettella~



















Wishing you all a beautiful day.
I love to be under the spell of creation and see what transpires..

Creative writing is a magical way to pass time..whether it comes out of the blue..
from deep within you, or whether something is calling you
 to sit  down and focus and build on seeds. 

This series felt like an illustrative-visual-poem of songstress transforming 
from pain and coming back to life, uniting with her music.  
A journey of  finding freedom..inner power and overcoming the hidden storms within her.. 
to free yourself into a world where all is new again.

I dedicate this to anyone who has ridden an inner storm 
and created something beautiful from it..
Victoria~

Creative Encounters & Kindred Spirits

I love to meet and connect with fellow creatives! I have a deep appreciation for all artists, creative thinkers, unique souls.
While my nature is mostly introverted and I thrive as a hidden -solitaire, I have found connecting with other creative-spirits to be profoundly nourishing and deeply magical in ways my soul understands. To those I have met along the way that have enriched my life with your art-music-writing-creations-passion-energy-open-mindedness....I thank you immeasurably ! and to those I have reconnected with and those I have not yet met..thank you for giving me a sense of community in a world I always felt on my own in. Thank you for these creative encounters, they have transformed me.

first love ~ and the freedom to create

I think every child at some point has first picked up a camera, (toy or real) and fell in love with that special magic. I was always fascinated by black & white photos & old pictures in family albums. In my teens I began my adventure with photography, then again in my 20's, I played in the darkroom developing film & creating prints, this is probably when I fell more deeply in love with it all.

I had a Pentax camera given to me from my older brother that I carried everywhere I roamed, shooting film wherever my spirit took me. I always explored on my own, (with a little bit of knowledge in my pocket) plus my intuitive nature guiding me in my own way to learn more and to seek and experiment in new ways. I love both analog and digital but my heart belongs in the darkroom.

I truly don't follow any rules, I like to feel free and uncaged and instead feel inspired to create in whatever way I feel guided in each moment...chasing seeds and visions is a journey afterall ! I love to feel my way through the Unseen, it is how we discover hidden realms and new strands to weave with.

Wherever you are on your adventure, be true to your own creative nature & follow your artistic-spirit as it speaks to you ..explore, have fun..keep creating and experimenting from your soul. Keep questing, take risks, indulge your unique-instincts and allow your artistic freedom to naturally unfold itself to you.
