A Rickmansworth pupil has been chosen to have a piece of her artwork featured on the front cover of a national crafts magazine.

Rianna Roston, a Year 13 student at The Royal Masonic School for Girls, in Rickmansworth Park, will have her piece featured on front of Specialist Crafts, which is used by hundreds of schools across the country.

Each year, the magazine publishes a student’s artwork on their front cover.

Rianna chose her sister, Ellie, to be her inspiration for the painting.

Rianna said: "Ellie was willing to be the model and the picture is quite expressive and she has a very expressive face."

Back in May 2013, Head of Art Leanne Kingston entered a selection of pupils’ A-Level coursework into the competition, hoping that one might be selected for print. Two of the entries were chosen to be shortlisted for the catalogue cover.

Rianna said she hopes to combine her interest in both art and history by studying History of Art at either the University of Exeter or the University of Nottingham when she leaves school.
