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 ~

prayer of the raven-girl







she once 
held the sun

she now belongs 
to the moon








Prayer of the Raven-Girl

She once Held
 the Sun
She now
Belongs to the 
Moon

and it was
t h e r e
in the Sacred Light
of Mother's grey-veined veil
where all her lost Sisters 
and the blue and white ravens danced
And it was only there
 she could know her Truth

and even as the Sun 
darkened away from her
she understood her lonely prayer
as the Moon lit itself 
in white fires and blissful rain 
the candles melted all the way down 
into the earth of burning sage and lavender wands
and there she was reborn

The dying sunflowers
 took her last sharp golden-breath
and sank her deeply 
into Autumn's red belly 
of severed claws and broken jewels

the Mists of Mother took her spirit 
way up high , softly
and she rose 
like a strange and beautiful ghost 
made of crystal-white petals and silver ashes
she became the Star-filled night
bleeding like midnight inks and azure metals 
across the glowing wings of the cosmos
in this world
she knew she would never be alone again

Prayer of the Raven-girl
she once 
h  e  l  d 
the  S  u  n
powerfully and brightly 
in the arms of her gentle mourning-soul
longing for dream-seeds
longing for home

now she Answers to  the
Call of the Moon
her Spirit finally 
unhinged
  and free to  
r o a m
the realm of blue-ravens 
and ancient storms
 wandering with the Sun-skulls 
and the wild Wolf-bones
 pulsing into
 the mists 
of all that is Unknown

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~
