About Us

Having started with traditional bonsai began in 1993, the opening of the El Dorado School of Satsuki Bonsai in 1997 marked the beginning of an intensive study focused specifically on satsuki azaleas. As a student in the inaugural class, I completed a three-year program becoming a certified satsuki bonsai instructor. Since completing that program in 2001, my studies have continued in Japan with the world renowned satsuki master, Nakayama Suisho.
