Bachelor of Arts degree – art

Luke says it was an honor to assist Lourdes with the Gray Wolf logo design. "It helped establish a communal sense of identity for students, faculty and staff. My comic books and gallery work are intended to be conversation starters, and to me, an open dialog is always a positive thing."

He often taps into the critical thinking skills he learned and honed as a Lourdes student. "My philosophical and theological classes taught me alternative methods of approaching a project. Learning how to describe and critique my work has aided my practice immensely."
