Former Heatherley’s student, Stella Tooth, has been working on a series of portraits of news reporters and correspondents.

An ex broadcast news pr, she has spent a fair amount of her life looking after the public image of news journalists, such as John Humphrys, and she recently visited the Today studio to paint him from life whilst he worked.

He later said of the experience ‘It’s rather odd having someone do your portrait while you’re working. They say the camera never lies..sadly, neither does the artist. I rather hoped she might iron out the wrinkles!’
