06 March 2012 – Former SCOLA student Front Cover Artist

6 March 2012

Former SCOLA student, Sally Pestridge from Banstead, Surrey, is the March 2012 front cover artist in ‘Paint – the magazine of the SAA (Society for All Artists)’.

The painting that appears on the front cover of this publication was one of her earlier paintings, done while she was studying at SCOLA (then known as the Sutton College of Liberal Arts). Sally describes herself as an amateur painter as she paints for enjoyment, but she does sell quite a few paintings at local art club exhibitions and through word of mouth. Sally started painting when she was about nine years old when her parents bought her a ‘Painting by Numbers’ set. She took A level at school and later when her children were babies, took classes at local adult education, then evening classes at SCOLA. Sally had the following to say “When my children were babies I took classes at local adult education – life drawing, painting and drawing, then evening classes at SCOLA. There I started botanical painting and then tried a watercolour course with a fantastic tutor called Angela Williams, and my life changed. I was totally hooked!” Angela is currently a Senior Lecturer (Creative Studies, Art & Design) at SCOLA and still inspiring students!

Congratulations, once again, to Sally for being featured on the front cover of Paint magazine!
