Sherree Valentine-Daines has been appointed as Cunard’s inaugural artist-in-residence. The internationally acclaimed British artist is recognized as the “Face of Modern British Impressionism.” She was commissioned by the organizers of The Queen’s 90th birthday celebration to create a work of art as a gift for Her Majesty.

As artist-in-residence, Valentine-Daines will host live painting demonstrations, hold a book signing event and showcase an original painting. The artists will host several exclusive dinners, cocktail functions and “an audience with” session—teaching the tips and tricks of how to stroke a brush.  

Helen Swaby, CEO, Clarendon Fine Art, says Sherree is a key figure in the art world.
