Local artist Judy “Yudit” Eisinger has created a Yom HaShoah painting titled Lost Souls to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day on April 8.
Born in Budapest, Hungary, the daughter of survivors, Eisinger and her parents escaped to Austria during the Hungarian revolution and later to the U.S., where she began painting at an early age. She studied fine art at the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Cooper School of Art, which led to a four-year scholarship to Kent State University.
Eisinger is an artist, educator and author. She taught graphic design as an adjunct professor at Palm Beach State College. She also illustrated, wrote and self-published a children’s book promoting the creative process, and is the owner and creative lead at Yudit Design, a full-service graphic design agency. Her talent and wealth of experience have brought an open-minded, adaptive process to her paintings, which have earned her many regional and national awards over the past 30 years.
Because of her belief that fine art is the essence of graphic design, Eisinger has received recognition both for her paintings and for her graphic design work, which has garnered several Advertising Federation Silver ADDYs and a People Choice Award.
With Lost Souls, Eisinger honors her family and all those that perished in the Holocaust.
