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 ~

1 part sky, 1 new moon ~



1 part sky, 1 new moon


☀ ♌ 🌑

note to self

when feeling lost
take
1 part sky
1 new moon
fold them both into your heart
push deeply
until the stars burn themselves in
and like seeds of new life
they will conjure worlds (you need to go to)
places that belong only to you
hold onto them, every single flashing seed
even as hurricanes set in
let them burrow inside
till your tongue tastes of lightening
remember above all
you are the fire ( your blood sparks wildfires of courage)
you are the sky ( and it opens to all sacred realms)
you are the moon ( and your bones carry her love)
and soon you will become the earth
(solid, grounded, rooted, embedding life-force within; you are home)

the changeling winds will bless the dark things with flight
they will escape into freedom and healing
the gardens will die inward and rebloom a new book of spells
where each tree and flora speak their ancient song
and birds can sense that your soul has grown wings
and they will teach you how to harvest from your deepest root
and how to ride on spherical wisdom with instinct and bliss
sometimes there will be rain, madness and strange storms
but you will be able to feel the sweetness in the changes
and the bright galaxies flooding in
there will be blessings born of pain and hurt
and your body shining in all colors; will be summoned to dance
unclothed and free

nothing can stop
a summer full of playful lions clawing down the roaring sun
or a grateful heart that births a meadow of tigerlilies
your nights will drip with serene spells of love
and profound renewal will begin to spill over your being like a waterfall
you will not shake, nor be afraid to live
and your Solar Return will strengthen you to radiate with victory
magic restored,  witchery in bloom
you are unchained
and wild
as nature
you are both bruised and beautiful
and you have found your song to sing.
~victoria pettella~

What a magnificent recipe for life and living, to let Nature and Wonder set into the spirit "till your tongue tastes of lightening", till Nature show us that fire can taste so good (and handled with care, with love, with trust...). We have to go to these worlds, indeed... If not, we'll never be all of ourselves...

Love this, Victoria. Thanks so much for sharing.

Much love and HUGE kisses.

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~
