  • (Janet's) Enthusiasm And Passion For Her Art Is Contagious...
    "Whatever task Janet undertakes, she does it with all her heart and soul. A picture is worth a 1000 words and Janet’s pictures and creations are the “Cream de la Cream”; the icing on top of the cake. I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Janet Van Arsdale, and her wonderful team at JVA, for the past decade. Art collaborations are most of the time the last element in the room or environment; Yet often, the most important piece. Project’s such as the Hilton Anaheim, Hilton Long Beach, Marriott New Orleans are just a handful of Domestic projects I’ve enlisted Janet’s help, to create and deliver a unique art package, taking not just aesthetics and creativity, but also budget, into consideration. Most recently, at the help of my own Studio, Atwater Inc, Janet and her team collaborated with our office to create a custom experience at the Boutique Le Bon Hotel in Hollywood and Commerce Casino in California. Janet is amazing; As the Captain of her Camera, she makes your creations come alive. Her enthusiasm and passion for her art is contagious and one is lucky to have her team as part of the Hotel development and Artistic package. "

  • We Look Forward To A Long Working Relationship With JVA Art Group...
    "It is my pleasure to provide this business reference on behalf of Janet Van Arsdale and the JVA Art Group. JVA provided us with tasteful aesthetics for our medical office buildings by merging beautiful artwork with directional signage. We reviewed Janet’s photographs from around the world. The images we picked were then transferred onto large plexiglass panels and installed in our facility. JVA Art Group skillfully managed all facets of the project. Janet and her talented team of graphic artists make this phase of my job an enjoyable experience. We look forward to a long working relationship with JVA Art Group."
    Loni Rush, Director of Design | Pacific Medical Buildings

  • I Would Highly Recommend JVA Art Group!...
    "JVA was very easy to work with in regards to creating the artwork packages. In addition to sending us a large variety of photograph images to choose from, they were spot on when modifying the images to get our desired final look for each piece. Also, if they did not have images from a specific city, they traveled to that location to acquire them. The cost for custom artwork was very reasonable and we were always satisfied with the end result. Therefore, I would highly recommend JVA Art Group! "
