About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Caretaker Jardim de Bonsai
Location Tavira, Algarve, Portugal
Introduction Master Hotsumi Terakawa was my first teacher, later on I've continued my studies with Master Salvatore Liporace whom I consider my Hoyakata! I'm an instructor of the European Bonsai School of Master Salvatore Liporace. I am the owner and caretaker of Jardim de Bonsai in Tavira Algarve, a nursery specialized in Bonsai and in teaching all the necessary thecnics related to this Art form. I am very eclectic in my work and choices. I'm used to work Japanese species but also Northern and South European species as well as tropicals. Deciduous trees and evergreens are my passion, but I also work all kinds of coniferous. The material I usually work are from Yamadori (collected in nature) to nursery stock.
