Stella Tooth

Following a career as a journalist and BBC/Sky News PR, I now work as an artist, specialising in portraiture and performer art. With a passion for reportage, my art is inspired by the stories of buskers, musicians and dancers. Through it I exploring themes of separation and connection and seek to blur the boundaries between illustration and fine art. Storytelling also lies at the heart of my portraiture, which I view as a collaboration. You trust me with your face, revealing something of who you are, so I can move beyond the photographic capture of a moment in time to portray your life lived up to this moment.

Uniting my past and present careers, I have completed a series of portraits of some of best known names in UK broadcast news including the BBC's John Humphrys and Kate Adie. I'm also a founding member of the Lots Road Group of portrait artists who met when studying at The Heatherley School of Fine Art, one of the oldest independent art school in London and among the few art colleges in Britain that focus on portraiture and figurative painting, illustration, printmaking and sculpture. Winner of the judges' prize at Egypt's first biennale (2013), I studied for five years at Heatherley's on the school's Continuing Studies, Diploma and Post Diploma in Portraiture courses.
