Wedding Calligraphy

This is my dad - because I owe everything to him...and because he's so cute. 


​If you want to see some amazing watercolors (which he is still producing at 90!), Google him.

This is me. 

About Jan Garver

My love of art was instilled in me by my father, Jack Garver, an internationally renowned, award-winning watercolorist whose "hobby" of calligraphy always fascinated me. I found at an early age that I had an aptitude for it, and was able to launch a successful business in 1992. All these years later, I enjoy creating art every day, and welcome the opportunity to try my hand (so to speak) at whatever project you might have in mind. 


I am also available for event planning, either day-of or longer-term. I will coordinate your vendors, prepare a timeline, wrangle your bridal party, and make sure that everyone and everything is in his/her/its proper place at the right time. 


In addition to being known as an artist, I am very proud to be known as an etiquette expert who is regularly asked for advice from other vendors and stationers (including Crane & Co.'s etiquette department). It is part of a calligrapher's job to ensure that every piece she letters reflects well on her clients as well as herself. I take great pride in the fact that every one of my clients has appreciated my attention to detail and knowledge. Rest assured that I will not cut any corners or do anything to make you or me look bad!
