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.

A Deep Love for Creative Expression and 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 towards something invisibly new. ~victoria pettella ~

The Blue Tree

lost world
blue tree
a place I used to know

then a bird flew through my mind
and I was free to go

lost world, blue tree
path without end
the amber bird took my tear
 the forest began to mend

lost world, blue tree 
a place I used to roam
a stormy bird
tore at my cage
and gathered up my bones

lost world, blue tree
buried my heart alive
Autumn  bird scraped away the dirt
so I could feel the light

lost world, blue tree
the sun began to breathe
drowning bird sang her spell
to enchant a world for me

lost world, blue tree
the darkness moved away
black bird released her wings
so I would no longer be afraid

lost world, blue tree
my mind quelled and free
swollen bird
saved my life
gave all her breath to me


lost world blue tree
a place I used to know
a broken bird
flew through my mind
so I could get back home
~victoria pettella~


* the power of your spirit is immeasurable
never give up , the strength within you 
will always take you back home*
dedicated to anyone who has ever climbed the blue tree
*
Wishing you a beautiful day

Oh Victoria...this one truly moved me to tears.
I have never climbed a blue tree...but your beautiful words at the end...well...they are precisely what I needed to hear as I anxiously await my husband's life-saving (hopefully) heart surgery.

So thank you, my dear Kindred...from the depths of my heart.
You have given me both strength and hope.

Love & Hugs xoxoxo

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~
