Janet Roth

Missouri 173My first encounter with the Japanese traditional arts was when I discovered bonsai at the East Bay Bonsai Society, which I joined in 1983.  I was subsequently introduced to suiseki by Felix Rivera, the founder of the California Suiseki Society. I now live with my husband, Mas Nakajima, and am a member of San Francisco Suiseki Kai and California Aiseki Kai and a founding member of Bay Island Bonsai.

I collaborate with Mas in studying and writing about suiseki and suiseki art and am the editor and webmaster of this site.
