New Release – Endless Summer by Sherree Valentine Daines
Sherree Valentine-Daines is widely considered one of the foremost impressionists of her generation. Her new collection is an irresistible reminder of the best things in life, whether that be a solitary walk through a field of buttercups or a champagne moment on the lawn at Ascot.
Sherree Valentine Daines has been at the forefront of British art for over 35 years – a truly remarkable achievement. Over this time she has been variously described as ‘the face of modern British impressionism’, ‘artist to the stars’, (Daily Express) and ‘the finest figurative artist we have here in the UK” (Art of England). Her exquisite paintings have been exhibited at such prestigious venues as the Tate Gallery, the Barbican and the Lord’s Museum and is held in many private collections all over the world.
Sherree’s unquestionable virtuosity has made her a favourite with many celebrity collectors including members of the British Royal Family, former Prime Minister Sir John Major and Sir Ranulph Fiennes. Many famous names in the world of show-business and sport have sat for her including Joanna Lumley, John Sessions, Sir Michael Parkinson and Sebastian Coe (Lord Coe) and Jonny Wilkinson.
Sherree is both the critic’s choice and the people’s choice, winning many high profile awards, and she has been officially voted the UK’s leading Modern Impressionist. A familiar face on our televisions she has appeared in programmes as varied as ‘To the Manor Bowen’ and ‘This Morning’; this autumn she was seen painting a £75,000 commission of a society bride in Channel 4’s documentary, ‘How the Rich Get Hitched’, and the reaction of the bride put all the other extraordinary elements of her wedding in the shade!
As well as her many exquisite original paintings and limited editions, Sherree has released a beautiful, highly-illustrated hardback book, Your Days, My Days, now in its second edition, and a series of stunning bronze sculptures which have become highly desirable collectors’ items.
“In a way my paintings represent a diary of happy days and wonderful memories that I hope others can relate to and enjoy.”
