Tom Luke grew up spending his summers at his family cottage in Muskoka. His favourite past time was carving decoys and canes/walking sticks. In his 20’s he began painting Muskoka scenes of nature and waterfowl on various natural canvases such as tree fungus. The last dozen years pyrography and wood turning have become an obsession for Tom. Discarded pieces from a local lumber mill and canoe paddles are just a couple of the surfaces Tom likes to create on. He brings his pyrography to life with artists pencil crayons. It’s not always serious art, Tom’s latest projects are making mushrooms and mice on the wood lathe.
