Lu Quade (a.k.a. Luke Wade) is an artist, musician, writer and educator from Newcastle. Focusing on music through his twenties, he rediscovered his love of drawing when his young daughter Rose first picked up a crayon. Unsurprisingly his drawing had not continued to improve without him. ‘Yay!’ he said, in his distinctive monotone, ‘I draw like a 13-year-old!’ He sees art as just another way to interact with people, and is a fan of adding an unwieldy amount of strings to his proverbial bow. Lately, he has been dabbling in the dark art of poetry – and is striving to become a good writer.
