After studying an art foundation course at Byam Shaw School of Art, Luke started an apprenticeship as a picture restorer, where he has spent the last 6 years honing his skills and understanding of varied painting traditions.

These small paintings are a contemporary take on Dutch 17th century cabinet paintings and are intended as a homage to the Guild of Saint Luke, which is the common name for a city guild of painters and other artists in early modern Europe, especially in the low countries.

These works are particularly dedicated to Jan Van Kessel a Flemish painter active in the mid 17th century, who in 1644 became a member of the Antwerp Guild of Saint Luke at the age of 23. He was a grandson of Jan Brueghel the Elder (Velvet Brueghel) who was famous for his velvety jewel like paint work evident in his wonderful insect studies.
