About the Artist


          Sarah Green holds a BFA in Painting and Drawing, with a minor in Art History, from the School of the Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University.  Awarded two scholarships, she completed her graduate studies with focuses in Drawing, Anatomy and Portraiture at The Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy, where she served as an instructor of both life and cast drawing in the Intensive Drawing Program.  Having recently returned, Ms. Green is currently maintaining a studio in her native Charlottesville, Virginia and is a member of the Piedmont Council for the Arts and the Portrait Society of America.  Her work is exhibited internationally and found in private collections throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia.


  About the Portraits
      
          The portrait process begins with an initial meeting during which the general idea for the project is established.  A sitting is held either at the client’s location or in the artist's studio and may include photography at the client's request.  Sittings from life typically last three hours and the number of sessions required for each portrait is determined both by the project's complexity and the client's availability. 

          Commissions are accepted with a 50% payment prior to commencement and the balance is due upon the client’s acceptance of the completed portrait.  All portraits are priced individually and fees are available upon request.  The entire process, from reserving a space on the portrait schedule to the delivery of the finished work, is usually four to six months.
