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.

welcome beautiful souls

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's flame


Autumn's Flame 
burns bright




Autumn's Wing
*
Summer gently falls
b e n e a t h
the Ancient breath of
 Autumn`s wing
a  new world summons
a labyrinth of seeds
soaking down the moon's release
 earthen womb full of mourning doves
Amber veils shimmering above
swallows circling the falling leaves
pressing stars between their beaks
upon the waters,  feathers drift on
echoing through like haunted swans 
wild branches 
carved like thrones
of crimson oak and mossy stones
ruby leaves and parchment poems
calling all the forest souls
bleeding colors, shining like bones
till the last white raven
falls quietly alone
*~victoria pettella~*






Autumn Poems





Summer Kings
and Autumn Queens
Nature dancing
t h e   I n b e t w e e n
still much fire, light and breath
till Winter sweeps it's spell of death
but only hidden for a time
the Earth asleep with paling light 
the mask of dreams
will fall
a w a y
as mother
r e w e a v e s
the darkened maze
the Spring will rise 
a torch 
of silver rain
the sun will shatter 
the sleeping cage
where death once lived
the light will now reign
the flora and forests
shall awaken again
~victoria pettella~
*magic prose*















Visual elixirs~
Blue Morning Glory, Red Maple Leaf and Sunflower





Birch Spirit in shadow
and draped in many moons







Each season
lights a sacred flame
to embody all
the gifts of change 
wind
water
fire 
& earth
enchants the Spirit 
of rebirth
Spirals shift
Magic ignites
the Eternal Ether
 of Infinite Light
~victoria pettella~

Wishing you the 
magic and beauty
during this 
deeply transformative season
Victoria



Happy Autumn

Oh Dearest Victoria...how utterly breath-taking!
Here...I have found the very Spirit of autumn in your stunning images and beautiful words.
I am moved into another, more magical World...that I never, never want to leave...:))

As I sat gazing at the Super Moon from my window, I thought of you, my dear Sister-Kindred...and wondered if you were watching it at that same moment too.
Wasn't it absolutely gorgeous?

Wishing you the very best of Season's Blessings!

Dearest Victoria,
It's an enchantment to visit your realm, you make my day. I think that each time there's something wrong around me, I will recall "Victoria's realm is the quietest place to be and stay hopeful, a secret paradise to almost touch the sky and listen to most beautiful things in the world". Thank you, so so so much, dear friend

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~
