Prior to retraining as a portrait artist, I worked as a print journalist & news pr for BBC & Sky News where I looked after the public image of journalists, such as the BBC's Kate Adie, George Alagiah & John Humphrys as well as Julie Etchingham, Presenter ITV News at 10 & Sky News' Adam Boulton & Jeremy Thompson. It has been insightful portraying them in this more personal way. And I'm grateful to Sky Correspondent Robert Nisbet & his partner Alexis Mavrikakis for commissioning me.

WHAT THEY THOUGHT 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."
- John Humphrys, Presenter Today programme, BBC Radio 4

"Being scrutinised by an artist's eye is a world away from sitting in front of a news camera – a far more personal and exposed experience – but the fact I know how gentle and endearing Stella is made it an altogether easier time than I’d imagined."
- Julie Etchingham, Presenter News at 10, ITV News

"Because we are looking out from ourselves most of us don't know what we really look like, let alone what impression we make - a portrait is the best way to find out and Stella has an artist's eye and professional insight when it comes to people from the media world like me."
- Adam Boulton, Presenter Sky News Tonight
