Daines Sherree Valentine b.1956)
Sherree’s distinctive society scenes and timeless images of childhood have established her international reputation as one of the finest figurative artists of her generation, and earned her the title ‘the face of Modern British Impressionism'
The authenticity and accuracy of her observation is softened by her impressionistic approach, and her subtle treatment of each scene or figure blends every detail into a creation of extreme elegance. Daines is one of England’s most internationally recognised artists with works in collections across the world. Her enduring status as one of the UK’s most collectable contemporary artists is reflected in her record of successful exhibitions at such venues as the Tate Gallery, the Barbican, the New English Art Club and the Lord’s Museum. Her unquestionable virtuosity has generated numerous portrait commissions from major figures within British public life, and placed her work in a number of prestigious private collections, including that of members of the British Royal Family
