I love working alone in my studio and creating there. I used to love to work like this as a child, and I still do to this day. Creating alone, and then sharing later, with the world!
The creation process itself is a discovery, an adventure. A mystery and a co-creation with spirit. I tune in and I listen. I am merging with the field. What drum will I create next? What variations will come through?
I enjoy savoring the experience of painting. I love to hear the sound the markers make on the vegan fibreskyn of the drums. It is quite a mindful type of work and requires my full concentration. The world disappears and there are only shapes and colors and merging with that other world... Creating a little peace of heaven on earth. Something truly unique and beautiful.
For that reason it is also quite important for me to stay fit, move a lot, so I go to the forest most mornings to tend to my body and staying active and fresh for this very detailed and demanding work - bending over a drum, painting for hours is actually quite exhausting!
I am very grateful to be doing this work in harmony with my body, mind and spirit and work at the pace I feel is right for me. Sometimes, I have creative bursts and I work a lot. Other times, I need to take my time and work more slowly. It is great to be in tune with myself and the drum and what we both need at the time and follow that. Work, rest, play. Recharge. This to me feels very much in sync with nature, which I feel I am part of.
I also love that each drum is handpainted and that I am personally in touch with the people I create them for. It is personal, unique. In a world where everything is instantly available, my drums are made to order and it takes the time it takes. A lot of times they are sold out and you just need to wait a bit.
Many have suggested me going into mass production but I enjoy that there are only a limited number of drums each month that are infused with all the love, dedication and care that I can offer, so the people who receive and work with my drums can feel that high quality and energy.
Accordingly, I also love to hear from my customers, when they open their drum packages and are over the moon about their new drum! It is so rewarding to know I am making others happy, and I am happy during the creation process as well.
So, there are actually a loooot of things to enjoy about this!
Through the energy I weave into my intuitive music & art,
I invite you to remember the truth that you are,
To courageously follow your heart, your truth, your intuition.
To remember your divinity.
To express yourself creatively and live a life in flow.
To see beyond limitations, illusions, fears,
remember your true self
and anchor it here, on earth:
The embodiment of
