    Dave Findlow, our Head Porter, has been immortalised in paint as part of a project by Cambridge artist Louise Riley-Smith to paint portraits of all the Head Porters at Cambridge University (Louise’s daughter is an alumna of our College).

    He said: "I considered it a great honour to be asked to sit for a portrait. It makes a change for artists to paint portraits of members of staff rather than the Head of House. My wife does not think the portrait is a good likeness, but I like it. She caught something of me which I find difficult to explain…"

    The portraits of all the Head Porters by Louise Riley-Smith will be on display in the Pitt Building in Cambridge from 18-25 June.
