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.
