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 ~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.

A Beautiful storm



A Beautiful Storm
๐ŸŒŸ

Magaly  has asked
 what is your passion /superpower/comfort 
when life gets hard and throws some monsters your way

My answer...

๐ŸŒŸ

I become 
beautiful
storm





๐ŸŒŸ

I become 
One 
with the Moon 
and her sacred wisdom








๐ŸŒŸ

I become Unafraid
to feel, to mend, to hope, to fight, to love, to embrace
to weather my journey
and find the will
to
 t r a n s f o r m




๐ŸŒŸ

I become a dreamer, a seeker
questing my inner worlds, traveling my imagination
letting myself grow, change, reformulate and become New







๐ŸŒŸ

Most of all
I remember that there is deep magic waiting within me,
All of the answers live there
and in those times
I need to nourish and explore my soul
and return Home again





๐ŸŒŸ

In short I reach for ink, enter strange worlds
and write poems 
the ritual of creating these tiny worlds
(and meeting the beings/creatures that inhabit them) 
carries some sort of energy that shifts me 
and moves a new life-force through me...

*
Ghostbird beneath Moon

I have become less fragile
mending my storms
healing like the ghostbird
beneath the moon in my soul

Deep thanks to Magaly 
for always sharing her creative world  and her magical mind

Victoria,

Oh, and worlds you DO create.

I've told you before how you inspire, how you open up your world and allow us in and how that gift spreads to, and through, us all. Today, you've reminded me of something very important. That transformation from the mundane to the enchanted. How it is within us alone. . . always. As I slog through the first drafts of a creative writing project larger than any I have ever attempted, I forget sometimes that my "rough draft voice" and my "final edit voice", while both being parts of me, are a lengthy process and require time to reach. An alchemy of elemental magic that is all around us and WANTS, I believe, to flow thru us.

Turning 100,000 words into something poetic is a process of the soul. One that I must find a rhythm within myself that allows me that access. Much like my favored books which I turn to again and again, coming to your page and dipping fingertips into the clear reflection of that enchantment is always restorative for me. Thank you again, as always, for sharing that with us all.

Victoria said...

Nicolas Hall
Deep thanks for all your generous words!I love what you shared about transformation/enchantment always within us..waiting..love that! I agree, the magic wants to flow through and ignite and create!
wow, your writing project sounds exciting..I have no doubt it will turn out magical and beautiful. So interesting how you put it..your rough draft voice and final edit voice..like two unique forces entering a dance of creation and alignment and new energy.Wishing you all the best on your new project, cannot wait to hear more.
Thanks again for your super kind words
V

Your words and images are so gorgeous! I was so moved by

There is such delicate power in your art.

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~
