As mother of the bride, I though my daughter was crazy when she told me she hired a wedding painter! They had limited funds for their special day, and I certainly thought a painter was a waste of $$$. How wrong I was. Every guest, every family member, even the staff enjoyed... Read More interacting with Janet as she painted. She was the highlight of the reception! And, the final product is breathtaking. Janet captured all the colors and atmosphere of the medieval banquet.. It will be treasured for generations. And, Janet is helping me order prints of the painting to use on thank you notes.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Janet. She is honest, sweet and incredibly talented. From the moment I contacted her, she worked with me to answer all my questions, describe what she does and the process, and make sure her plan for our painting was exactly what we... Read More envisioned. Everyone at our wedding told us that they loved watching the painting unfold throughout the night, and that Janet was so lovely to chat with as she was painting. Janet worked on the painting to perfect it after our wedding was over, and then shipped it to us when it was finished. We could not be more pleased with the finished product. She captured our two families perfectly, and her work is so superb. Janet did not miss a single detail, down to the small details of what we were wearing, and the facial expressions of us and our families. The painting is truly a work of art, and is now one of our most treasured items. We hung it up within minutes of receiving it, and we love looking at it everyday. We cannot recommend Janet enough.

The painting is so beautiful- with the beautiful bold red barn, guests drinking during... Read More our cocktail hour and myself and my husband under our ceremony tree.

My guests loved watching Janet paint our big day and even a couple proudly pronounced, 'Look at me, I made the painting!' This piece of art captured our night so perfectly! Every morning before I leave for work I take a second to look at this painting and it always brings a smile to my face- it’s the perfect way to start every day. We love her so much my mom asked her to also paint my sister’s wedding in November! Thanks so much Janet!

Read More every questions to working while everyone else partied she was top notch professional the whole time. She captured our first dance and through her vision and the aid of various photos she was able to create a truly unique memory.

She also hand painted an amazing pair of wedding shoes that any bride would be amazed by.

Wow, Took my breath away. She is so talented. She came to the wedding and set up and my guests were in awe at the idea of what she was doing live, and to watch the painting of our First Dance together develop and take form was amazing. This artist also painted my wedding... Read More shoes! One of a kind idea I wanted to do for my wedding. She painted flowers and our names on the shoes to match my wedding colors. I even had my gown shortened so that everyone can see the shoes. The painting she captured our first dance as a married couple and it included all of our wedding party and some family members. I'm not sure if she realizes but there looks to be an angel in the painting that I'm sure is my mom looking down at our happiness, because the only person on the stage was the DJ and I can see him. So I feel doubly blessed. Between the First Dance painting and the shoes I couldn't have asked for or expected the BIG wow factor from all of my guests. I highly recommend Janet Howard from J.Howard studios to do your wedding! Worth every penny! The painting makes me cry tears of joy when I see it. We framed it and it will reside on our front wall , so when we have guests at our house its the first thing they will see. I wish you could see photos. But check out her Facebook page to see more J.

I am passionately dedicated to creating works of art that will be keepsakes for a lifetime. You can trust I take special care to details that you want in your work of art and the nuances of your event. I have been a fine artist my whole life, painting people and landscapes. When I painted a friend's backyard party a couple of years ago I realized I had a business- a service of documenting celebrations and gatherings. What is the ultimate gathering? A wedding! Since then, I have painted several weddings and fundraisers and I am always touched by the timelessness of love across all cultures.
