About Me

Born in Moline, Illinois (an industrial town known as the farm implement capitol of the world). Luc worked for various metal shops after high school until he finished his AA degree from Black Hawk College/ Moline. Luc then enrolled at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale to study art. In the summer of 1983 he studied art and architecture in Europe via the Intur Kultur Off Campus Studies Program. After graduating with a BFA he relocated to California where he worked for a variety of metal fabrication shops, and art and industrial foundries, as well as obtained his MFA from the University of California at Santa Barbara. He has taught art at the College level, as well as teaching sculpture to Elementary and High School students.


In 1992, Luc moved to Seattle, Washington where he started his business Elf Foundry and Fabrication. He also designed and built the Cleveland High School Foundry for the South East Seattle Arts Council in Seattle, WA and had numerous shows demonstrating his work.


Most recently, Luc has called Unionville, Maryland his home where he resides with his wife and pygmy goats and where he has established Elf Studios on Unionville Road. His work is shown at galleries in Philadelphia, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. Within the local community, his studio was on the “7 on 75 Studio Tour”, and he is a member of the TAG Gallery and the Delaplaine Art Center in Frederick, Maryland.
