  • I came across at least 5 painters when searching for one for my wedding, and I am thrilled that I picked Live Event Painting by Janet Howard-Fatta! One of the first things that drew me to Janet's page were the style and quality of her paintings. Her paintings are calm to the eye and she captures the important details in a live painting. Janet was extremely professional before, during, and after our event. She was open to make my vision of the painting a reality and she truly captured the joy and love on our wedding day. If you want a unique memory at your wedding and a special piece of art in your home as newly weds, I highly recommend Live Event Painting by Janet Howard-Fatta.

  • From the moment I discovered that live oil painting vendors even exist I knew it was something I HAD to have the day of my wedding. Janet was the first vendor I booked after choosing my venue. From the first time I reached out to Janet she was extremely responsive , professional and personable . She addressed all questions and was so easy to work with . The day of the wedding I was so excited to meet her, we chatted before the guests came into the ballroom and had already started painting the room . She is so wonderful and talented. Having her at our wedding was huge hit. Family and friends are still talking about how fascinating it was to watch her work. Janet is amazing at what she does, she is beyond talent . In a few shorts days we receive our painting and we are SO excited !

  • There is pretty much nothing that I can put into words that will capture the essence of Janet’s work. First off Janet is a doll to work with so responsive so caring and available to answer any questions within a day’s notice. Her attention to all the details before she creates your work of art will truly lead up to the magic she puts on the canvas. Fast forward to the day of she is so sweet and while she works, she interacts with guests. One of our favorite vendors by far. Her incredible talent is still the main conversation from all of our guests. Fast forward a little more to the day of delivery it really is wonderful the care she takes into packaging the canvas. She wraps it so perfectly the box could go through a tornado and it would still me immaculate. Finished product was nothing less than magic. The exact moment, the details and the feeling she captures really brings us back to our special day every time we walk by it. Not to mention it is a beautiful piece of art that will... Read more

  • Janet’s work was the highlight of our reception. Worth every penny. She’s extremely talented, and a wonderful person on top. Very down to earth, and pleasant. She was even dancing as she painted :) so happy with this decision. This painting and even the live experience is and was something we’ll always cherish.

  • One of the best decisions my (now) husband and I made when hiring vendors for our wedding was hiring Janet to do a live painting of us dancing for the first time as husband and wife. The painting is breathtaking and we couldn’t be happier with the end result! Janet was beyond professional and patient. She captured every detail we requested. Janet is truly passionate about her work and it is evident in the beautiful paintings she creates. Our guests are still talking about how amazing it was to watch her in action and how stunning the painting is! Thank you so much Janet!!!

  • Janet recently did our wedding at the Grand Marquis. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how awesome it was to watch the painting unfold throughout the night and how amazing it looked! Janet was very personable and worked with our budget from the very beginning. She truly has a gift for what she does and we cannot wait to have our painting framed! Thank you again Janet for the beautiful painting!

  • Fantastic painting of the evening!!!! Janet did a wonderful job, all of my guests enjoyed watching her painting and it was such a wonderful conversation among the guests . This painting was a little surprise for my husband, his parents both passed away. But with working with Janet; I was able to send her a picture of them and she included them in the painting. Truly a beautiful painting and will last a lifetime, worth every penny!!! Highly recommended

  • Janet is such a sweetheart and a very talented artist! She created TWO lovely paintings for our ceremony and reception. All the guests were seriously impressed, and it gave a unique touch to our wedding! Janet is very easy to work with, great with communication, and took the time to understand the style we wanted. We didn't have to wait long for the finished paintings either. I talked to many event painters, and Janet is one of the more experienced artists and her prices are reasonable. We can't wait to hang up the paintings in our new home! (Still amazed she was able to do 2 in one night!) Thank you Janet!

  • I cannot express what a pleasure it was to work with Janet for our wedding! She is as kind as she is talented. Not only did she capture every, amazing detail of our night, but she did so effortlessly as she talked with our guests, who were mesmerized at her abilities! She makes it look easy and talks to anyone interested as she is painting. Janet's work is simply, amazing! The way in which she does her work is not only a talent but a true gift. Her style of art is gorgeous. And, her ability to capture the level of detail in the faces of our guests is remarkable. My husband and I were beyond thrilled with the finished product. Janet listened intently to exactly what we wanted to capture and she exceeded our expectations. She talked with us several times before our wedding to make sure she understood what we wanted. She had never been to our venue before but worked tirelessly to research pictures to familiarize herself with the room prior to her arrival. You would never know she had neve... Read more

  • We decided to get an event painting instead of Getting a video - and hands down was the best decision we could have made for our wedding. Janet came highly recommended by one of her peers - and I am SO glad we found her. She is beyond a pleasure to work with. Having a video done Very professional and takes great care to get to know her clients and get a feel for what they want in their paintings. We spoke in detail on the phone for almost 45 minutes about what the painting should look and feel like, whom we wanted pictured, and what was important to us in the painting. Our guests really loved seeing her paint, and loved interacting with her as well. She gets there early to start the background and by the end of the night the painting was mostly done. She takes it home to finish final touches; because she genuinely wants it to be a perfect depiction of your special event / day - and her work really is and does speak for itself. I would recommend her to anyone I know that is getting mar... Read more

  • After looking at a few different live painters, Janet's style was exactly what we were looking for for our wedding day! Aside from being unbelievably talented, she is so organized, professional, responsive, and fun. She took the time to learn exactly what we were looking for and to make sure she incorporated all of the aspects that were important to us - and she executed it perfectly! We even had a request for a change in one of the details after the fact, and you wouldn't even be able to tell that she changed something in the painting. My guests really loved interacting with her throughout the night and the finished product brought tears to my eyes! I highly highly recommend Janet!
