Accomplished painter and printmaker Kim Ransdell inspired our Bike Month billboard outside the Bloomingfoods Near West Side store, and has shown her work in the BloomingArts Series and other popular local venues. Kim has a letterpress printshop, The Collective Press, where inspirational messages come to life on paper against the most beautiful colored backgrounds.
A Bloomington resident since 1997, Kim worked in our East and Kirkwood stores from 2000-2002, and many of us are still wearing the 25th Anniversary t-shirts Kim designed. Kim recently shared some of her thoughts and motivations with me. Learn more about Kim’s work at her website, TheCollectivePress.com.
