The Copper Child
"Collecting Memories and Dreams... " (poetry, photography, wall and video art)
I started writing poetry and some prose on the 29th of March, 2006. And in summer of 2007, I bought myself my first professional camera. I used the lens of a camera to open my eyes and focus into details of color, and shapes seduced by the beauty of darkness, the silenced “soulless” objects around me, objects found in the garbage made of human pride and the careless consumer. Later on I recruited almost all my friends to the reflected world of those unique lens and collected several portraits photographs from the people I really loved. Many of my works have been recorded in MySpace, Facebook and Deviant and the whole of my work finds today a shelter under the pages of this site.
The Angel’s Nest and the Copper Child ©
(a concept, a house, a story)
In November 2006, In a house in Amaroussion (Maroussi), I created a world, called, the Angel’s Nest. I placed there, thoughts on a paper, images on frames, videos on screen, paints on walls and a dreamer’s wish, that one day I could share all these with the World.

In July 2007, I invited Artists to join me into a world lost in space and time, beyond political, social and religious differences, where 91 Artists would share their individuality through Art, under one universal project, The Diary of an Angel. Their testimonies can be found under the following galleries:

The Halkoems ©
Collecting the images, binding them with poetry and addressing always to the soul, vibrating through Music, I expressed myself experimenting with video art and I called my video/video poems Halkoems. And as soon as the galleries of the images I had collected became a few, as they have formed the frames of a larger picture, became my story and along with smaller individual ones, my expression, the world I lived in, ever since; The Angel's Nest.

The ties that bind a man to all his friends
Are those which cause his values to unfold
And make him quick to secure pleasant ends
Creating harmony before he’s told
Content within the constraints of their love
Yet perfectly fulfilled with his own lot
Garnering insight as if from above
Enduring patiently when it is not
Experiencing wealth in the shared stake
Contributing his part to common weal
Enabling the same for others’ sake
Delighting in their gain with heartfelt zeal
Determined to bring his vision to birth
The angels’ nest is spread across the earth
Spirit star within her heart.
She will not be human again
Butterflies are an angel's halo.
Silk glides over the etheric in ripples of gold.
Further up, further in.
Have so much to give to others in dark times you have been there for me and I know others. You can see this in you. When we fail, get our lowest is our time to reach out to God...... And reach up ... Give him glory... So he can then shine on you. You are beautiful! You will see. You are loved and you are not alone! Most beautiful gifts don't see whats in the package. Others open them up! I love you Halacionions! My tear-drop angel! by Mary Margaret Schell © 2009
