SHERREE VALENTINE-DAINES was born in Surrey in 1956 into a highly artistic family; her father was a sculptor and stonemason and her sisters are also artists. After studying at Epsom School of Art she won the Laing Landscape and Seascape Competition and many further awards. She has a great facility to capture the spirit of sporting events and was featured on BBC television painting at Test cricket grounds. Some of the paintings are now in the Museum at Lord's.In 2003, Sherree appeared on Star Portraits with Rolf Harris, being one of the three artists chosen to paint Michael Parkinson (see left).
She is a great believer in the ability to draw as the foundation to painting, and works from a life model every week, as well as painting from life. Her paintings have an impressionist feel with broad strokes and full of colour. Her subjects range from landscapes to portraiture, working in oil, watercolour and pastel, on small up to very large canvasses. A favourite subject of Sherree's is children. She takes particular delight in depicting young children in idyllic childhood settings. She has four children of her own, so she never has a shortage of models!
Sherree's work has been included in many Exhibitions and Galleries and some of those she exhibits in regularly are:
