A natural draw to the experimental side of things

Sparked by an Explorative & curious nature; I love the Experimental & Intuitive side of creativity. Creation is always awake, it lives uncaged & 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, flawed & strangely-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.

seeds of creativity

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

A deep love for the strange & unusual. Drawn to the soulful, poetic; all that is flawed, broken & beautiful. Nature , the seasons and their transformative magic also weave their wild spirits through my words , art & creations. ~vpettella~

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

Wonderful selections here. They speak "autumn" even in black and white. I really liked the slight touch of color with the morning glory shot, the spider in the web and the light with the cute little dog.

Autumn Blessings Victoria!
Why is it the most magical time of year?
Your words are right, it is to do with the light and dark elements coming together. Real magic is in the air during Halloween time.
I love your black and white photos and especially your little snowy dog. Is he or she yours? So cute!:-)
Simply beautiful words and magical photos as always!
Best Wishes,
xx

A Deep Love for Creative Exploration

Creating imagery for me is a visual journey,
a way to explore & express hidden stories, inbetween worlds, 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 towards something invisibly new. ~victoria pettella ~

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.

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, polaroids & 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. ~victoria pettella~
