The 36th annual Festival of Trees is proud to announce that local business woman and graphic designer, Judi Loscomb, will be this year’s Festival Artist. Judi has been part of the graphics team for the Festival for the past 35 years and is pleased to be able to design this year’s poster. She said she was inspired by the vision suggested by Festival chairmen Leslie Ware and Midge Menzies and by the title “A Winter Wonderland.”
For over 35 years, Judi Loscomb has been a strong leader in the community. You know her best from Laser Letters, Inc., a well-known printing and design business located in Easton, Maryland, that she established in 1986 as the co-owner, CEO and graphic designer.
Judi is also known for her continuing philanthropic and service work in the community through groups like Talbot Soroptimist, Women & Girls Fund, Friends of Hospice, Memorial Hospital Foundation and many other charitable organizations.
She served as the 2005 Board of Directors Chairperson for Talbot County Chamber of Commerce. In 2001, Judi was honored by the Talbot Chamber as Business Woman of the Year. Laser Letters, Inc. was also recognized as 1991 Small Business of the Year.
Aside from her professional life, Judi is a constant reader, a lifelong learner and an avid music fan and concert goer, (Jazz and Texas Swing). She is also especially pleased to have been part of a small team of award-winning kite makers. In 2009, Judi, along with her good friends Debbie Leber and Debbie Carney, were awarded with the 2009 Grand Prize at the Smithsonian Kite festival for “Spindrift,” their Della Porta style kite which they designed and constructed from an old spinnaker.
Judi and her husband and business partner, Bud Loscomb, are both natives of the Eastern Shore – Judi hails from Ridgely, Maryland in Caroline County and Bud from Oxford, Maryland in Talbot County. They now reside in Easton and have three adult children and five grandchildren.
