Favorite Type of Sewing: Trying new projects. I love to learn how to make things fit together. I am really liking sewing with used materials because I don't always know how the product will look.

LUKE is an artist to watch. He is up-and-coming while continuing to innovate and design new ways to create art. His work is currently in the Brooklyn Museum, the Newark Museum and the Headquarters of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation just to name a few. He shows across the country and internationally. Haynes has lived in 14 states; he is currently living in Los Angles California. He studied architecture at Cooper Union in New York and considers his fabric art to be an architectural method of image creation. His works can be classified as quilts since they follow the traditional methods of construction, but they are much more. His concepts and images pull from the annals of historical painting and sculpture but are also allowed to pull from craft and the domestic. Since the medium is atypical, this allows for pieces that have multi layers of visual as well as conceptual intrigue.
