I am here to help you acquire, style and maintain the finest collected and field-grown material available anywhere for bonsai.
Whether you’re a beginner or a more experienced artist, please think of me as a resource you can count on.
Each tree you see on this site has been personally collected/grown/selected (for those I’ve acquired from other collectors/growers), pruned, potted, and in the case of “finished” trees, styled by me.
Now, this doesn’t mean that mine is the final word on any of these bonsai; it’s a given that in the wonderful world of bonsai, there are many tastes and many different views on what makes a great tree. You may like what I’ve done and simply work to refine and maintain the design. You may choose to re-style the tree based on your own vision.
Either way is perfectly fine!
My bonsai philosophy revolves around one simple fact:
“Better Material Means Better Bonsai.”
If you start with great material, then no matter what direction you take the tree in you’re hard-pressed to go wrong. I like to think it’s not that easy to make something bad out of something really good (though it certainly can be done).
The bottom line is, we all work with whatever material we acquire, or collect, or happen across. Treat yourself to a little of the finer material that’s out there. Your collection will be much better off for it.
And don’t forget, I’m always available to answer any questions you might have. Just leave your comment or question below.

How to Use This Website
Our website is geared toward presenting you with BONSAI and PRE-BONSAI that are of superior character, so you can focus on artistic design. You’ll also find ARTICLES on various bonsai topics.
I don’t know about you, but along with the pure enjoyment of bonsai I really love all the doing that goes into this art/hobby:
- the collecting,
- the workshops,
- the exhibitions,
- laying out the display garden,
- even the weeding and feeding.
All of these things are part of a greater whole, which I guess is another way of saying that bonsai is much more than the sum of its parts.
Please enjoy these pages, and please keep me in mind as you make your bonsai journey.
I would love to help you in any way I can. If you would like feedback about a bonsai you already own or are interested in learning more about any of the bonsai pictured here (bonsai), here (pre-bonsai), or here (gallery), just leave your comment or question below (or you can always email privately).
Thank you and Happy Bonsai-ing!
