"The original painting 'Aegean Sisters' was a commission I completed this year for a client who in general wanted something involving twin mermaids. It was a fun challenge for me simply because I never paint multiple figures together, and I appreciated the freedom given to me by the collector to kind of do my thing without too much direction. Overall I think it came out really nicely. I enjoyed the de-saturated, marblesque tones of the skin alongside the more vibrant, yet melancholy colours of the rest." - Sarah Joncas
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
was born in 1986 and grew up in both Hamilton and Niagara Falls, Ontario. Her interest in the visual arts developed at an early age, starting with the dedicated drawings of dinosaurs and lizards. Eventually the study and enjoyment of working from existing images stirred up the need in Sarah to create images of her own; ones that could reflect the world, yet also appease the personal feelings/ideas that she herself maintained. With this, her direction changed gradually from the world of animation, towards a path in fine art. Sarah recently graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design's BFA program.
