Luke Martineau

Born in 1970, Luke is a London-based artist who was educated at Eton before gaining a First in English and Modern Languages at Oxford. He studied briefly at Heatherley School of Fine Art in London before beginning to paint professionally in the 1990’s.

Luke is a versatile painter whose output encompasses portraiture, landscape, still life and illustration.

He has regular solo in the West End of London and a thriving portrait practice. Luke discovered a passion for landscape painting at an early age, and plein air painting whether on his travels or in London, is still an important part of his work.

Highlights of the last 5 years include painting Her Majesty The Queen visiting Eton College and a full length portrait of the Lord Mayor of London in 2011. In 2010 he travelled to India with their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall as official tour artist. His work is held in many public and private collections including the Royal Collection.

Luke is President of the Chelsea Art Society.
