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.

pears in sunlight~elemental poems























































e l e m e n t a l   p o e m s




I love combining random things of natural beauty, like fruit, with also other elements like stones, rocks and gemstones and jewelery. A language appears and combines..I love exploring the hidden visual seeds in photos through shape, textures, form.. both similar and contradictive, and the connecting thread that begins to emerge across these little visual landscapes and poems.

I also love combining all of the symbolic elements of nature in my photos in some way. You will see droplets of water, stones of earth, seeds of air-(wind) and sunlight(fire) and that sense of spirit-ether in some way. Also different woods and many metals, all powerful elements..I love to play and combine them like elemental-poems and watch as they unfold and the energy they reveal.




Thanks for visiting...
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 in highschool, then again in my 20's in college, 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.
