Handcrafted artwork by Jude Smith
The Art Makery brings together an elite group of highly creative artists with a shared mission: to bring fine original art into your home or business direct from their studios.
The Art Makery is about accessibility – a vision realized through the comfortable look and feel of your street corner boutique art shop. Without the high overhead of a traditional bricks-and-mortar operation, we can offer you the art at a fair price.
For nearly three decades Jude has provided customized art solutions for high-end residential and corporate collections and for other discerning art clients. Jude received her formal art training and her Fine Art degree from Mt. Mercy University, a hidden gem of a small Midwestern liberal arts college that Money Magazine recently recognized as a “Best University” for accessibility and personalized learning. It was there that she developed her passion for making affordable fine art widely accessible to the public.
In 1993 Jude set out on her own and established Art2uinc., an art curation firm with a mission to work directly and interactively with her clients to provide the highest value fine art solutions that meet their tastes, personalities, and values. In 2016 this became The Art Makery. With an impressive list of high-profile clients, the results of her work can now be found in private homes and vacation villas, in corporate headquarters, in prominent golf course clubhouses, in hotels, medical facilities and office buildings.
Jude has developed rich and powerful relationships with great artists, artists that are at the pinnacle of their own individual successes. The Art Makery brings together this cadre of top flight artists and makes their work readily accessible to you.
