In bringing graphic design and visual art together, Judith Rempel Smucker challenges the viewer to engage on both visual and reflective levels. Through the use of mixed media she pursues innovative ways to combine word and image for effective and thought-provoking communication. Vintage fabric scraps, found typography, photographs and handmade paper become key components in her process. Smucker’s work as artist, designer, educator and published author takes inspiration from a rural background, living abroad and an ongoing commitment to the natural environment. Her work evokes stories and recycles elements in our everyday lives toward the common good.
