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 ~

poetic souls~a mix of candles, tudor lace, romantic goth




























































































   
(Many Thanks to my hand-model and his very lovely hands! Much appreciation.)



I love photographing hands...I have many collections of hand portraits...
Hands are so personal..uniquely precious..magical..atmospheric..beautiful..simple..
there is  a natural poetic language they  seem to carry..quiet messengers we all connect with.

This series...felt darkly beautiful..full of ritual and poetic essence, with a hint of vampire
hope you enjoyed it.




Wishing you all moments of Unusual Beauty and the Mysterious in each day!

Autumn~season of mysterious beauty




Autumn Light
October shadows




This time of year fills me with deep magic 
and mysterious beauty.






My love for the inbetween realms 
of shadow and light calls out to me
along with many solitary adventures 
where I crave to create and express.






Every season carries it's unique spell....
and Autumn has marked my heart 
and claimed my soul.








Wishing you the deep magic 
of Autumn..




Thanks to all for following and visiting,
much appreciation!

I will be posting more often and sharing different works 
and projects and creations!

Cannot wait to see what you have all been up to!
Victoria

wisdom will guide you


~dreamy, impressionsistic, double/multiple exposure~

Wisdom will Guide you
*
In the stillness
Inside of the silence
wisdom will guide you
In the darkness
in the deeps
wisdom will guide you
in the most forgotten places
beneath a lonely sun , under a dying moon
wisdom will guide you
when all is lost
when all feels broken
wisdom will guide you
Without words
comes every answer
it is here deep within the Soul
where wisdom will guide you

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~
