A little bit about Heather
Heather Leavitt Martinez is a practical mix of fine and commercial artist. Rooted in printmaking and photography, she has worked in nearly every medium including ceramics, sculpture, and graphic design. She also draws and has written an award-winning book. Now teaching online and small, in-person lettering classes in her studio at The ArtRoom in Durango, Colorado, Heather is known in the community as an arts advocate, coach, and mentor.
She is a lettering artist by accident but loves it fully and it’s one of her main focuses in life. Her love of lettering has inspired her to study with master calligraphers, sign painters, and graffiti artists from around the world. She takes what she learns and translates it using Neuland tools and materials and teaches what she learns to others.
Heather has arts administration training from the National Guild of Community Schools of the Arts, Colorado Creative Industries (CCI), and received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and CCI to expand her art career coaching model. She has developed two platforms to deliver her work as a lettering artist and tech host. She is currently working with the Center of Appreciative Inquiry to deliver her work as a visual practitioner and AI Facilitator.
