Behind the Scene with the 13Moons Team

Meet the creatrixes behind 13Moons: Stories & Art | Astara, Sherria, Natalie, Toni, and Anaya.

Welcome to this special relaunch issue of 13Moons: Stories & Art!

This Samhain issue is dedicated to the Ancestors.

May these works and our toils invested be smiled upon and accepted as an offering of reverence by our loved ones who have walked before us, those whom we knew and those we never met, those whose names we know and those we do not, for each one who came before us now lives in our blood, breathes through our veins, and inevitably finds their way to the page, the canvas, or any other portal we lay before them . . . so that they may speak again – with us, through us, as us – in all the most exquisite forms available on this luscious Earthly plane.

Thank you for being here and honoring this sacred time as our bodies slow down, even while our minds may go a’racing as we move into holiday season scramble, hunting gifts and overindulging in treats to lift us through the Dark Half of the Year. May your season be like good sex: spicy, warm, slow, and deep.

Editor & Creator of 13Moons

 

OUR MISSION

As the Divine Feminine arises, the voice and the heart of the Mother will shine. The 13Moons Team is dedicated to being a vessel for such a divine force, creating a space for the emerging artists’ voice. As artists ourselves, we recognize the magick and wisdom that can be spread through creative expression. Follow along as we break the chains of the Divine Feminine Oppression.

 

ASTARA SOLAE (penname Sarah Asia)
Editor and Creator of 13Moons

My creative nature is not restricted to “making” art. I live and breathe as an Artist, see as the Artist sees, and weave my personal, professional, and creative life just as I please, in true Artist form. I live to sip inspiration and hunger to feed it.

I am a Creature of the Night, a consort of Nut and liaison of the Stars and the Trees alike. Luna breathes through my Blood that I may remember the secrets of the Mother from my Bones and whisper them across the winds like dandelion seeds for NTR to gestate at Her whim to bloom within the wombs of my Sisters.

I am We.

Artist Statement:

I’m a multimedia, multidimensional artist, hopelessly in lust with dramatic punctuation that stuns the page and arrests the reader. I like to challenge the rules by teasing the skirt of under- and innerstanding – art that demands presence and, sometimes, patience to digest.

Trained in more formal settings here and such, my work is primarily birthed by the flow of my Ancestors spiraling through my veins, the Storyteller within me, she who likes to play wordsounds like Jane plays Jacks and Hopscotch.

They call her ‘Blood: the magic within me who dances forth as art for your eyes’ delight, in word and color and form of every sort.

SHERRIA NICOLETTE
Creative Director

Candid. Provoking. Inspiring. Educating. These are the words that describes Sherria’s work the best. Through both visual and written arts, Sherria aims to ignite the inner God/Goddess that lies within.

Artist Statement:

A forever student of the universe, I use my art as a channel to share, inspire, and encourage the collective to find the God(dess) within. The only time I could truly express myself was when I was creating another world on paper. The ability to just let my mind roam free with its imagination was the ultimate freedom to me.

It was through my imagination that I found truth. Truth of the subjective within the objective. It is where my truth could be expressed with no question to the rhythm of my strokes or the rhyme of my words. It is an inner expression of me and the many stories lying within my DNA.

The process of my art is inspired by the world and materialized through an open, clear mind ready to channel the words that flow and the images that appear. It is there, in my meditative state, where I am connected with the inner core that holds the wisdom, the experiences, and the feelings that inspire my work.

NATALIE HUBER (penname Ishva Auset)
Art Director

Natalie is an Educator, Intuitive Healer, and Creator that gives voice to the Goddess within through her own Earthly experiences. She has been a visual and written artist for many years and sees creativity as a meditative process that unlocks messages from Spirit and the Ancestors. Her creative pieces are published under the name, Ishva Auset, The Daughter of Stars.

Artist Statement:

Art allows me to simultaneously lose and find myself. I am a collector of words and images that hold memories of who I authentically am. The creative process has always been the way in which I express my truest energetic form.

In many ways, my art is actually the meditative process of creating and the finished product a vessel that houses my most sacred thoughts. I’ve always had a deep fascination with making something out of nothingness. Art provides the means for me to spin the thoughts that live inside my head into something tangible.

I enjoy exploring emotional experiences, the female body, and intimate relationships through both language and image. I immerse my body, mind, and soul into each piece through the duality of my own nature. I am both student and teacher, painter and subject, sculptor and clay, poet and reader, vessel and stars.
