Amy Elizabeth Leder
Ms. Leder grew up in Houston’s art district, and has always been drawn to museums, entranced by how they tell the stories of different cultures. While studying Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado, she focused on lighting and embraced the idea of designing beautiful and immersive environments that enhance individual everyday lives. At FMS she has continued to explore ways of connecting people to the spaces they occupy through lighting.
An enthusiastic traveler, she feels fortunate to have visited over 20 countries. Each trip has exposed her to different and extraordinary cultures, landscapes, and scenery. Her experiences have enriched and empowered Amy to be more a creative and compassionate lighting designer.
Amy enjoys the creativity and challenge of designing and creating neon art. Bending glass requires thoughtfulness, problem solving, and focus when planning and creating. Her beguiling works are single line pieces that simplify complex organic forms, blurring the edges of fore and background. She also serves as coach for the Columbia University Women’s Ultimate frisbee team.
Many hands make light work
People are our greatest asset, and we have great people.
