About Joanna van der Hoeven

Welcome to my Patreon page. Please allow me to tell you a little bit about myself. I am an author, singer and teacher. I live in a little village in Suffolk, UK, on the coast of the North Sea. I was born in Canada, but moved to the UK over twenty years ago. I love this land, even as I love the land where I grew up in the mountains. Though there are no mountains here, the heathland, forest and shingle beaches are beautiful, and sing to my soul. I am still learning to live with this land, working with honour and respect in order to deepen the relationship. 

My main focus in life is being inspired by nature and expressing that inspiration in various media forms to show how one can develop deep and meaningful relationships to the land where you live. I have published 12 books (the majority of which are based in nature spirituality) including a medieval fantasy fiction novel, as well as a book of poetry. You can find out more on my Amazon page HERE. I also have my own dance company. 

I would love to spend more time writing on my blog, and uploading videos on my YouTube channel. I'm especially excited about my YouTube channel, and would like to provide much more in-depth content. It takes a lot of time to film a video and get all the editing done, so thanks to my Patrons I am able to start on these endeavours.  I would love to get better equipment in order to provide better content: a better camera, editing software and microphone for starters. It is thanks to my supporters at Patreon that I have been able to purchase a second-hand drone for beautiful panoramic overhead shots of the heath, forest and seashore that is my part of the world. I would also love to spend time creating an album of music inspired by this land and its incredible beauty. 

I would deeply appreciate your contribution towards creating more content for these avenues of media,  to support my writing in the future and also to get better equipment for these endeavours. You can support me from as little as $1 a month. There are options to suit everyone!
