Jennifer Price

Jennifer Price discovered bonsai eight years ago after retiring from the stage as a professional ballerina. She is struck by the line and form within bonsai and the ability to use the tree’s natural flow of movement. For the last several years she has been involved in an intensive study program with Walter Pall from Germany and Jim Doyle from Pennsylvania. She has taught workshops and given demonstrations worldwide and last year was in Germany to be a part of Generation Bonsai and on to represent America at an international bonsai convention in Shanghai, China.

When asked to describe her bonsai philosophy Ms. Price replied “Bonsai is first and foremost a way for me to express the grace and power of nature with its beauty, its quiet elegance and harshness. Creating a bonsai forms a connection to a living entity, which you cannot truly control, but can listen to and learn from. Through one’s own creativity, the possibilities are almost endless.”
