Yves Leterme runs a studio in Sint-Kruis, a town very close to Bruges, Belgium. Having taught Latin and Greek for 25 years, he quit his school job in 2010 to become a full-time calligrapher. He takes on various commissions and makes free artistic work. Teaching, however, remains his main vocation and occupation. Since 2006 he has toured extensively around the globe to give workshops and presentations for societies and conferences. He also offers several online classes on the Acorn Arts platform. In calligraphic circles, Yves is especially known for his refined and versatile gestural lettering, his minutely drawn capitals and his richly textured, abstract backgrounds. Yves’ work has been selected for inclusion in many juried shows and his artwork can be found in catalogs, magazines, museums and private collections, as well as on Instagram of course. He’s the author of Thoughtful Gestures and Litterae.
