1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.
I am a conceptual artist who right now primarily works in the medium of glass – specifically neon.
I started as the layout, or bending pattern designer, in a commercial neon shop and slowly but surely started to make my own work in neon when I had gained an understanding of how to work with it. I bend figures and scenes and stories. I like to describe my pieces as a paused film reel in neon.
2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?
My favorite museum is the world wide web. Always open, no lines, known artists, unknown artists. It’s the wild wild west of viewing art. That’s more alluring to me than walking into MoMA.
