Sarah Joncas

Sarah Joncas's art has the rare and cherished combination of precise technical skill and intense and stylized themes. I think she hits just the right balance between kitschy and cinematic (who'd have thunk, right?), and she uses oil the way it was meant to be used, layering until she gets amazingly deep tones and bright expressive lighting. Her site has a ton more work if you're interested - Sarah appears to be ridiculously prolific with her creation, especially considering the size and medium of her pieces.
Also, in the neverending case of people who look like their art, I think she really resembles her girls with their wideset eyes and round button noses.
Who do you know that looks like the people they draw?
