Luke worked for a time at York Road Mill and later in the Belfast shipyards, studying art at evening classes at Belfast School of Art. In 1927 he was awarded a scholarship which allowed him to attend the Slade School in London where he studied painting and sculpture. He then went on to Westminster School of Art where he studied wood engraving. Luke began to exhibit his work in London but in 1931 the economic recession forced him to return to Belfast, and he spent the rest of his life in Northern Ireland.
