Jerome Kellerhals was born in Switzerland, and he has been around bonsai for as long as he can remember. His mom lived in Japan and was a big influence in his love for the art. However, it wasn't until he moved to the United States that he started studying it deeply. Suthin Sukosolvisi, Min Hsuan Lo, and Nacho Marin have influenced his work. He is known for being creative and a "rule breaker". He created a unique piece using the technique "root over rock", but using a statue instead. He called his tree, Angkor, as he got inspired by Angkor Wat while he traveled around China and Cambodia. Jerome has been featured many times in the Bonsai Focus Magazine, recognized worldwide. Also, his trees have been selected for 2019 & 2020 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival in Orlando, Florida.
