Luke, a former public school and college teacher in Illinois and California, became fascinated with basket making while living in Arizona. Now a resident of Whitehouse, Luke is bringing her skill at basket making to East Texans.
Art teacher Barbara Robertson is co teaching basket making classes with Luke at TASCA's Whitehouse facility.
