Raven Delaval's Profile

About

I come from a long line of crafty women who taught me sewing and beadcraft as a family heritage. The rest I’ve learned through experimentation. I'm also a writer, a forensic anthropologist/paleopathologist, and the co-founder of Husky Havoc, a nonprofit rescue for Northern Breed dogs (www.HuskyHavoc.com). My passion for dance and for writing historical fantasy has inspired my shop: I create characters who dance as maenads, then create pieces which could be worn by my characters.

The Maenads (MAY-nadds) were devotees of the Greek God, Dionysus. By day, they led normal lives. At night, they danced in the wilds. They were known for their sensuality, their feats of agility, grace, and endurance, as well as their extravagant costumes. Though my background is in classical ballet, I'm drawn to Tribal Fusion Belly Dance... something any Maenad would appreciate…
