About


Luke Firle is a multi-disciplinary artist hailing from Hematite, Missouri. In his early career he was primarily a painter with interests in the history painting and mark making.  As a painter he works in a variety of paint mediums and uses a multitude of application techniques. As as sculptor he is interested in systems that interact and compete with one another. As a craftsman Luke is interested in the reuse of materials that others are throwing out. He is constantly in the pursuit of learning new skills, old as well as new and using new technologies to further his knowledge of making.
