Painting Drums 

The healing power of drum's rhythms has been in my life for thirty five years, my relationship with the frame drum has developed through my experiences drumming in shamanic and zen trance dance ceremonies during ten years of Jill Purce's Healing Voice workshops, within the mysteries of the British Isles, running a drumming circle and drumming with friends or alone for meditation, healing and pleasure. Drawing from my interest in natural and elemental forms, ancient and prehistoric art and the power of symbol, the images for the drums are birthed as a result of the interweaving between the images given to Suzi, my intuitive knowings and the drum's purpose.
