Artist’s Reception for Luke Boyd
February 21 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Please join us at the artist’s reception for Luke Boyd from 5pm to 7pm.
Complimentary light tapas will be served.
Luke Boyd is a confectionary artist who combines cake decorating, baking, and painting to
make appetizing art about emotional experiences. He first started baking with his grandmothers and his mom at a very young age.
Painting and baking served as an outlet for Luke to be flamboyant and queer before he was openly gay.
He now uses his cake sculptures and paintings to affirm viewers with messages of love, acceptance, and humor.
He earned his Bachelor of Art degree from California State University Bakersfield in 2015. While in California,
Luke spent 4 years studying art during the day and learning to bake at night through an apprenticeship at a local German bakery.
In 2019 he graduated from Ohio University with a Master of Fine Art in Painting.
Luke currently divides his time between professional cake decorating and developing an
expansive body of artwork in his Athens, Ohio home studio.
