Her painting series, Hipsters and Hassids was featured in such prominent publications as The New York Times, Haaretz, and Tablet to critical acclaim. In 2010, Sudin founded the media outlet Jewish Art Now with the aim to redefine Jewish art in the 21st Century.

In 2014 she launched NY Drawing Booth, a company that provides live portraits digitally drawn on iPads for both personal and corporate events internationally.
