Oil on Linen, 24" x 20"
The portraits of noted artist Sandra T. Colquitt embody realism in
the classical tradition. An exact likeness of the subject is conveyed
in her portraits, which also portray the spirit and sense of presence
of the individual in a sensitive and dignified manner. This is achieved
through her extensive knowledge of the craft of painting, and over
twenty-five years of experience in the field of portraiture.
Sandra, a native of Savannah, Georgia, holds a B.F.A. degree in Art
from the University of Georgia, and has studied with master portrait
teachers throughout the country, such as Bettina Steinke, Daniel Greene,
John Howard Sanden, Michael Shane Neal, and others. She is the recipient
of many awards, among those the selection, twice, as a finalist in
the Annual Artist's Magazine International Portrait Competition.
She is a member of the Portrait Society of America, The Portrait Institute
of New York, and is a Member of Merit of The Portrait Society of Atlanta.
Specializing in oil portraiture, her subjects range from children
and family portraits to personalities in the academic, institutional,
and business world.
Of her work Sandra states, "The challenge of portraying the human
face and form has always been a special fascination. The likeness
must be exact and the painting must have sound design elements to
make a beautiful and strong work of art. I love being an artist and
God has blessed me with the ability to record His creations through
the medium of paint."
Sandra's work is much sought after and is represented in public and
private collections over the Southeast. Recently she has completed
portrait works for the public collections of the Georgia Ports Authority
and Armstrong-Atlantic State University.
She maintains a studio on Dutch Island, in Savannah, Georgia.
