After a short stint at art school, I got into video producton and started making graphics for television--at first by hand and then on the computer. I continued painting canvas but felt limited by the media.
I'd always liked neon and would visit the Museum of Neon Art (neonmona.org). There was a similarity in luminosity between television and neon. Both had the "glow". In 2004, I took the neon class offered by the museum taught by Michael Flechtner (flektro.com).
The experience inspired me to want to do more with neon. After many hours of instruction and many hours of practice, I began to create shapes reflecting my aesthetic. Texture, layers, transparency, reflection, glow and color are elements I use to create my art.
