welcome here Trent, you don't have a place outside because the, know death assured, as long as I don't put a trash can now, it will save you from wasting time and tell yourself that a tree of interior, it does not exist
I've made a few posts already but haven't actually introduced myself.
My name is Jonathan. I live in the subarctic, near the James Bay in Northern Quebec. I moved here in 2018 with my wife and son to be closer to their culture. I've been obsessed with trees and nature since I was a child, so a remote place like this suits me just fine. I wouldn't consider myself an extreme outdoorsman, but I've always felt calm and at home in the bush, and a place like this has presented me with an opportunity to finally pursue bonsai. The wilderness is vast, and the amount of potential material is virtually limitless...
Drawing is how I express myself for the most part. For a time I thought I wanted to be an animator... until it nearly ruined drawing for me. As for bonsai, I've been more or less obsessed with it since the age of 15. But I lived in a bubble where the art didn't really exist outside of "Karate Kid"... Perhaps you know the feeling? I did my best with books and the internet, but the information was sort of vague and mysterious. Most of all it didn't really apply to the northern Canadian climate I lived in (even before I moved farther north). I didn't have access to clubs or anyone else who practiced it. I had a few trees I bought from a garden center, and I did a few experiments with overwintering local trees, but ultimately that's as far as it went for a long time.
Now that life has presented me with a real opportunity, I fully intend to take advantage of it!
