A local artist grows happiness one miniature tree at a time.
Boston-based artist Jacob Kulin leads a busy life. In addition to designing a new art installation for Symphony Park, in the Fenway neighborhood, he spends his time creating sculpture and custom furnishings for discerning clients. When he finds a moment away from his studio, he practices the ancient Japanese art of bonsai. â€śFor me, spending 20 minutes in the morning working on a bonsai tree is therapeutic,â€ť says Kulin, whoâ€™s had his eye on this 75-year-old Australian pine for a while now. â€śSo much time and care goes into these bonsaiâ€”this plantâ€™s value comes from its elegant shape and impressive age.â€ť
