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 ~victoria pettella~
* Images are like seeds of energy. Creating in these worlds is a form of ritual for me. A deep affinity for the seasons & all aspects of transformation. A deep love for nature, all creatures, every sun, star & moon.~victoria pettella~

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.

I  WAITED  FOR  YOU 
IN  THE  STARLING  MISTS

Y O U R   S C A R S   A R E   B E A U T I F U L


your scars are beautiful
your strangeness embraced
your darkness channels
the breath of stars
your flaws make you real
your heart is a deep poem
my soul longs to know
you ( we ) are broken
you are beautiful
just as you are
your wounds make me feel less lonely
I understand myself better
for knowing your silent world
and the hidden pain you shape into light
birthing dreamscapes of neverending wildflowers
you carry the storms
so that others may heal

Words shared in truth, heart's blood exposed with pride, scars matched and embraced as experience's beauty-marks... are soul food, soothing to the flesh. As your poem suggests, they are the things that make us who we are, that remind us that there are others like us, that magic us real.

This is beautiful poetry and photography, my sweetest Victoria. And I hear my muse singing with yours... chanting, "Yes! Yes! Yes!"

And we dance.

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 ~

A natural draw to the experimental side of things..

Sparked by an Explorative and curious nature; I love the Experimental & Intuitive side of creativity. Creation is always awake, it lives uncaged and 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.

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~
