Meet Elena, belly dancer
Elena and I met amongst the knights, ladies and peasants of a Medieval Faire. After that, for the longest time, she taught me beautiful belly dance routines via video (well, as long as the internets played nice).
I asked Elena, is there a story you want to tell about your dancing? She told me a tale that inspired her love of dance – a sweeping love story straight out of history, starring a heroine who shares Elena’s Ukrainian heritage, set in the opulence of the Ottoman Empire.

A huge thanks to Elena and her husband, Yevgen, for you enthusiasm, support, and inspiration.
Part of the proceeds from the sale of these prints go to Elena so she can continue to spread her love of dance.
