Allen Hills:

Allan Hills was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina and did his undergraduate work at the University of North Carolina. He completed his PhD in Geology at Yale University.

While living in Buffalo, New York, Allan came across bonsai books published by the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and began experimenting by making bonsai from plants he found in local greenhouses. Allan admits to killing many plants as he learned about root pruning and the wiring of bonsai to style.

A move to Denver in 1975 brought Allan in contact with the Rocky Mountain Bonsai Society (RMBS.) Since this introduction, Allan has given many programs and demonstrations at the local level and at national conventions held in Denver. Additionally, Allan has twice served as president of RMBS.

Allan is much respected for his artistic talent, finding and discussing the best attributes of trees being designed as bonsai. This artistic talent extends into oil painting and the creation of viewing stones (suiseki) which he displays in his home and at the RMBS Annual Show.
