Luke Haynes

Luke Haynes (born 1982) attended University of North Carolina School of the Arts, before graduating in Architecture from Cooper Union in New York City. He currently lives in Los Angeles, California. Luke is a quilter who likes “to blur the distinction between function and art and alter the way objects are perceived.” Haynes is known for his portrait quilts that often depict himself, his family and friends, or celebrities in a variety of contexts.

“I have been working for 10 years to understand and implement quilts as fine art ... images I have grown up with as the foundation of American art meshed with the ideas of quilting I have been working with.”
