About Jimmy Neon
Jimmy Neon is James Morris, a 1974
graduate of The University of Iowa School of Art. A degree in
art and Life Drawing and additional
training from The Art Institute of Chicago and The Rhode Island
School of Design , along with a family tradition of glass blowing,
has led Morris to his unique blending
of neon glass blowing and figure art.
Morris has received numerous awards
and his art can be seen in galleries from Chicago to Los Angeles.
His "Bubble Sculptures" and other kinetic neon sculptures can
be seen and purchased from Hollywood Neon on Melrose Ave. in Hollywood,
California. Remember Spuds McKenzie? Jimmy was involved in the
production of these well known neon
beer signs. Morris is a member of I.E.B.W. and when not making
art he is a production tube bender (neon sign glassblower).
Morris shares a log cabin with his
dog, Lucy, outside of Seattle, Washington. He also runs "Northwest
Neon Instruction" , retraining workers for the State of Washington
and teaching neon art.
