I have been around bonsai since the early nineties and always been fascinated by the smaller bonsai and growing them myself.
This led me to write two books about shohin-bonsai. I am travelling the world to demonstrate and lead workshops with both Shohin and larger sized bonsai.
At the Kisetsu-en bonsai online school we cover a wide range of three sizes and species.
With more than 25 years experience and a background as a gardener, I strive for excellence in bonsai and teaching you to grow your own bonsai.
Techniques, aesthetics and joy is key words in my teaching.

The video library grows week by week, and there are hours to watch already.
Also, join the LIVE Q&A monthly where your bonsai questions are answered live.
