seeds of creativity

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

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!
Victoria~

Wow! So romantic!
Your photos make me think that they should be advertising some kind of Gothic movie like Sleepy Hollow. They are very atmospheric and beautiful.
I see you collect crystals and Jewellery like me! ;-)
Oh, I love your Celtic ring, beautiful knotwork design.
Happy Halloween and Autumn Blessings!

What a fascinating series of photos. I feel that hands tell us so much about a person. Each are so unique and this series definitely had a mysterious feel for me. I really like the dark ring the hand model is wearing. :)

Beautiful work!

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.
