I am a Dutch woman who loves nature, traveling and adventures. My plans are to travel through Europe soon with my campervan. Since I was a little child I was very curious, loved being in nature and I wanted to explore the world. When I was 21 years old my first big journey started in Australia and Asia.
In my life I had several jobs from travelguide, administrative assistant, theatremaker, waitress, documentary maker, working in healtcare to yogainstructor. Now I am starting a new adventure as a professional shamanic drum maker.
I learned these skills of Gerard Portheine, who is a professional allround drumsmaker over more than 13 years.
Making those shamanic drums is meditative and creative. Being outside, working with my hands and with natural material is what I like to do. Connecting with nature is important for my wellbeing and that message I like to pass on to other people.
The handmade shamanic drums that I made can be found in my webshop. If you are intersted for trying or buying a shamanic drum, just contact me.
It is also possible to make a drum yourself. For more information see drum workshop.
