We hope you enjoy this insight into Sherree Valentine Daines. Keep an eye out for more news and updates from us – we’ve got some fabulous things to share with you soon.
Sociable, chatty and quick to laugh Sherree lives in Surrey with her husband and fellow artist Jonathan Rowbotham, in a 17th Century house which is as warm and welcoming as the artist herself. Her sanctuary is her wonderfully messy studio filled with canvases, brushes, pallets, pots of paint, and an infectious energy. Here she creates up to 30 oil paintings a year, some of which sell for tens of thousands of pounds.
“In theory I paint from 10am to 10pm. I also spend a lot of time in the fridge”
In her new collection of limited editions, Sherree takes us to the ballet where her painterly, impressionistic style matched with such beguiling subject matter renders each individual image timeless. Sherree’s penchant for concentrating on the light and shading within a scene took her down the route of impressionism, and the influence of artists such as Renoir and Degas can be seen not only in her style but in their shared subject matter.
