shadows & souls

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 ~

Summer's Veil~ where I have been lately




Where I have been lately...




Dreaming with the foxgloves along Summer's veil
Reading  poems under the ghost-bride of moonlight
Chanting as all wild-hearted witches do in the forest
Wandering through the towers of goldenrod and sorcerer's violet
Offering my soul to the rain-soaked gardens
Swallowing the sunlight in the mossy labyrinth-womb
Standing still in the bones of the blue night
Listening to the creatures and leaving offerings
Tangling into branches searching for wisdom
Sleeping in the ivy and waking against the bark
Harvesting mother's greenery and weaving new seeds
Letting my spirit dance with the neverending cosmos
Finding my freedom in the season of light
~victoria pettella~








where I've been lately







Where I have been lately..

Living fully , wide awake
In the heart-space of nature's lullaby
In the ancient belly of deep magic
Wandering like the ebb and flow of water and chasing fireflies and storms
Breathing out the acorns and oak
Feasting on the silence in floral caves
Being, connecting, communing
Trusting and shape-shifting
Like a bright flower weathering,  meeting the end
Untainted by death,
Knowing that the fallen petals and seeds will return again.

SOULMOONS


we drift with breath
with mist
with moon
the dust of souls
we cycle through
still woven
by season, love and bloom
immortal hearts
forever new

Spinning spiders
casting veils
across the ghostly daffodils
Summer Solstice wears his crown
while Queens of Autumn carry down
the chanting Moon of Dragon-fire
into the icy crystal spires

The Kiss of life and death we hold 
till Spring reveals her maiden-throne
Ravens peck through 
the dark-glass of night 
where soulmoons search 
for their lost light

Shining Owls sheer at the seams
where tears release the world unseen
bound with breath
with Crescent and Loon
Weaving love into their tombs
the dust of souls
we cycle through
Eternal Hearts
become Renewed

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~
