Painted Tongue Press

Painted Tongue Press

Painted Tongue Press is a letterpress studio producing greeting cards of plants, flowers, and animals, made from drawings by Kim Vanderheiden. Apart from the card line, Kim’s body of artwork focuses on a shifting awareness of the meaning of justice towards love-based practices fostering relationship and healing. The card line is a labor of love as well as a practical instrument we can all use to tend caring relationships, a necessary practice for communities of justice, which are beloved communities. 

The painted tongue is a colorful Chilean flower of the nightshade family. This namesake reflects the marriage between image and written word that is characteristic of letterpress work.
