Neon Art and Signs by Eve Hoyt

BACKGROUND

Born and raised in Annapolis, Maryland, I have been working with neon since 1989. I received my neon education at Savage Neon in Baltimore and spent the next several years working in a variety of commercial sign shops, learning about neon and fine tuning my glass working skills. In 1994, I moved to the Philadelphia area and changed my focus from signs to more artistic endeavors. In 1998, I set up my own neon studio where I currently work and live with my husband and two daughters.
