Maya Ravensong is an Artist working in many different mediums. From dance, to writing, to paintings on canvas, silk and on the body, Maya creates healing art for herself and others.

Maya's art is a mix of strange, beautiful, sometimes humorous or wyrd forms- all of which can bring healing. She paints mostly with her fingers, though she does use other tools as well. She sometimes uses a magnifying glass to get into such small detail that, to some, it would seem pointless- but her, is completely the point. Maya has published one book “BodyArt Therapy” and is currently working on a tome where she explains how to become one with the divine and heal through dance.

Maya attends different events throughout the year. You can find a list of those events here

Silk

Silk- feels like a butterfly kiss to the skin. Shimmery, flowing colors. Beautiful to behold and wear.

Red Veil Red Veil 2 Blue Veil

The above are examples of the silk veils available. Each one is hand painted with dyes using several techniques- including Japanese Shibori. Dyes do not leave a 'feel' on the silk (unlike paints) so the softness and movement of the silk is not changed.

Veils

All veils are made of Silk Habotai in 2 weights (momme).

Habotai silks are produced from the mulberry silk worm. They are also called “China Silk”. It is a smooth weave with a luster type of finish on both sides.

Momme is a weight for silk. It describes the weight of 100 yards of silk, 45 inches wide, in pounds. So, if a fabric is listed with a momme weight of 8mm, it means that 100 yards of the fabric weighs 8 pounds. The higher the weight in mommes, the more opaque it becomes and the heavier the silk is- which changes the movement.

I work in two momme weights for my veils, 5mm and 8mm. From time to time veils are available that are made from different types of silk, sizes or weights. These will be noted in the description.
