Lisa Schulte aka “The Neon Queen”, is best known for her work in expressive neon sculpture. She started bending neon in the early 1980’s, creating custom neon signs and neon prop rentals to the entertainment industry under her Los Angeles based neon studio, Nights of Neon. 

 

Lisa Schulte has merged artistic genres by collaborating with contemporary artists such as RISK, Gregory Siff and Cleon Peterson. In 2017, working with illustrator Brendan Donnelly, the artist constructed a vibrant, celebratory neon sign for Bulleit Frontier Whiskey which is currently on display in downtown Los Angeles.
