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.

The seasons will tell us
when to bury our winged
when to unearth our song
& when to untangle the dreaming things ~

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~

weaving her wings




Autumn draws in another deep breath
Filled with mist and gossamer veils
Memory of summer has scattered and fallen
Moon spills open Seeds from their shell

Hidden below a Songbird`s bones
Twisting arms of a Druid's Tree
Broken butterfly and wooden moth
Softly shattered in the mossy leaves

A quiet lull as Sun goes down
staked through the heart of Earth and Crown
Amber Goddess plummets down
adorning the land in her jeweled gown

Bleeding her dream for a new world to begin
The Earth rests and takes her body Within
Swallowing the tail of Autumn`s  Skin
A skeletal prayer , now weaving her Wings

Wishing you all a Magical End to this powerful month 
& to the Beauty of October's Full Moon in Taurus

The End of October
A time of tribute to the Ancestor Spirits
and of Loved Ones now gone..
A Sacred & Magical time
and the beginning of Celtic New Year

WEAVING HER WINGS


The Land of Mists thinning 
and reconnecting us 
to the realm of those now gone
A Time to Honor & Celebrate
the Sacred reunion of living and dead
and a time of 
dedication, love and tribute to them.

There is so much autumnal mystery here, the bare tree against the darkness, the red and gold leaves against the indigo sky, the single grey leaf, your mystical poems....
I shall be looking out for October's full moon, thanks for the reminder.

Beautiful words and images. I love this time of year. The longer nights and you can feel the magic riding in the wind.

Kelly said...

Wow, I love the poem. . . I feel like I can almost inhale the magic you've woven here.

(But, I don't think my spirit is agreeing with the full moon being in Taurus. The vibes are all wrong. Ha!)

Enjoy the moon magic!!

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~
