Luke studied Fine Art (painting) at Manchester Metropolitan University.

His work is inspired by meticulous observation of the physical world, rendered in vivid colours and textures that are evocative of his deep emotional responses to his subject matter. Most of his images represent human beings and nature; culture and perceived opposites such as rational and emotional, analytic and synthetic, spiritual and physical. The process of painting and how different materials interact are of equal importance to him.

Luke has extensive experience of lecturing and running workshops and insets for further education colleges, schools and the wider community. He teaches all age groups and abilities. including people with learning difficulties.
