One day this beautiful moth appeared 
against my window..
it conjured dreams in my soul 
and left me questing 
in the 
deeps 
of my heart

poetic souls~a mix of candles, tudor lace, romantic goth




























































































   
(Many Thanks to my hand-model and his very lovely hands! Much appreciation.)



I love photographing hands...I have many collections of hand portraits...
Hands are so personal..uniquely precious..magical..atmospheric..beautiful..simple..
there is  a natural poetic language they  seem to carry..quiet messengers we all connect with.

This series...felt darkly beautiful..full of ritual and poetic essence, with a hint of vampire
hope you enjoyed it.




Wishing you all moments of Unusual Beauty and the Mysterious in each day!

all things must

fall away

die

change

in order

Autumn~season of mysterious beauty




Autumn Light
October shadows




This time of year fills me with deep magic 
and mysterious beauty.






My love for the inbetween realms 
of shadow and light calls out to me
along with many solitary adventures 
where I crave to create and express.






Every season carries it's unique spell....
and Autumn has marked my heart 
and claimed my soul.








Wishing you the deep magic 
of Autumn..




Thanks to all for following and visiting,
much appreciation!

I will be posting more often and sharing different works 
and projects and creations!

Cannot wait to see what you have all been up to!
Victoria

seeds of creativity

Themes of transformation & transiting through cycles of life, breath, death & healing seem to seep into my work. Nature, creation & the ever-morphing seasons are a constant guiding force & inspiration.

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..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.
