|On the 24th March 2007, Tess Barnes featured in the Saturday Telegraph Magazine in an article about Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty.
Shami Chakrabarti comments on her favourite painting:
'The artist Tess Barnes wrote to me when I was not long in my job and quite stressed, and asked if she could paint my portrait. I met her, we chatted, and I decided to sit for her because I wanted to spend more time with her. For several months we spent an hour together every couple of weeks. It was like therapy.'|
