Luke graduated in 2009 achieving a Bachelor of Arts in Design for Games. After completion of a Post Graduate Certificate in Education at the University of Plymouth Luke joined Plymouth College of Art as Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Game Arts programme in 2011. Since then Luke has also been operating as a freelance artist, working for independent clients in London and Sweden.
The freelance opportunities and his strength in continuing professional development have all been directly tied to his career as a lecturer; enhancing his knowledge base as he supports students with similar ambitions to realise their creative potential and begin to operate as professionals within the entertainment industry themselves.
As an artist and lecturer Luke continues to discover ways of shaping the Game Arts curriculum to make session content relevant, fun and up to date with industry practice.
Luke’s personal work is mainly based in stylised 3D Prop Modelling and concept art, all with a strong link to creating fictional immersive worlds. For more, see www.artstation.com/lukewestart.
