These children playing on the beach are

following in the footsteps of countless generations.

This beautiful new collection represents a

significant milestone in Sherree’s long and

successful career. It is 35 years since she made

the leap of faith into the rarified world of the fine

artist, and

‘Lasting Impressions’

confirms that

she remains one of our finest artists. Despite the

ever-changing demands of artistic fashion and

a fickle contemporary art market, she has never

compromised in her artistic aims and values, and

as a result has achieved a formidable, and well

deserved, status in the art world.

Evoking a variety of perfect summer days, Sherree

contrasts the style and sophistication of the

social scene with gently affectionate portrayals of

childhood innocence. These are two very different

worlds, but this versatile artist proves herself

equally at home in both. She has a rare ability to

conjure an air of lazy hedonism and effortlessly

draw us into each beautifully evoked golden

moment. Her expert handling of contrasting colours

and textures creates an authenticity that generates

unrivalled intimacy between viewer and subject.

Sherree’s expert handling of contrasting

colours and textures creates an authenticity

that generates unrivalled intimacy

between viewer and subject. Her painterly,

impressionistic style matched with such

beguiling subject matter renders each

individual image timeless. She captures the

essence of a moment and conveys every

nuance of an atmosphere by combining hues

on the canvas or stroking on adjacent colours

to let the viewer’s eye absorb and blend the

image. In this way the audience becomes a

participant in the creative experience, and

together artist and viewer discover a subtle

sense of movement, vibration and vitality.
