"I Spoke to Luke at the start of the year about doing a portrait for me and the family of my dad and his dog Aslan. He Talked me through the process (I had a good high-res image) and explained the breakdown on costs and his time etc.....
The end product is just unreal, and the whole journey from an initial sketch to finish painting was amazing.
I even got Luke to come and help pick the frame. Can’t recommend enough and wish him all the best making a business out of something he clearly loves." Gareth Jones
‘’Luke pitched his sessions with us (a group of enthusiastic amateurs) perfectly. He is a naturally gifted artist, and calm, clear and encouraging as a teacher. He gave us tools and tips to create some wonderful portraits using a variety of approaches and mediums. We are looking forward to having him with us once again.” Helen Boutle, Head of Creative Recovery (Recovery Through Art) Barnsley
"I completed the 10 week portrait course in July 2018. It was an absolutely fantastic course. Luke is an incredibly patient / supportive teacher and clearly very talented. He also has a great taste in music!
Over 10 weeks the progression all the class achieved was amazing which was clearly down to Luke’s teaching skills. We all came with very different backgrounds many, like me, were complete novices. I personally learned so many new skills and came away each week with a real sense of achievement. Really hoping Luke will hold a follow on course....." Yvonne Morgan
I LOVED the portrait course. (Luke has) a lovely way of guiding without being critical and teaching without being bossy or superior. And in my experience that's very rare!
I didn't think that moving onto paint would be for me, as I'd only ever pencil drawn faces before that, but I was surprised how much I enjoyed it and more importantly, felt almost confident too."
