Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt opens a Pop Up Art Gallery in Hastings
Bathing Box Beauties is arguably Emily Holsman's most popular painting.
This article recalls the moment that Emily Holsman makes her very first foray into the art world.
Pastel Art Prints all started when I called into a small cafe in Hastings one day and ordered a take-away coffee.
While I was waiting, I noticed a box on the counter that displayed a range of greeting cards, featuring the work of a ‘local artist.’
I browsed through them and was transfixed by the beautiful images they presented. Each one was as delightful, charming and exquisite as the next.
I gave the cafe owner my telephone number, asking her to pass it on to the artist in question.
Soon after, I had a call from Emily Holsman and we met for a coffee in Balnarring Beach.
Emily explained that she had been painting with pastels for several years and that she made a very modest living, reproducing some of her artwork on a range of greeting cards that she printed herself and distributed amongst a handful of local retailers.
I thought that her work deserved a much wider audience and that people the world over should have the opportunity to appreciate and enjoy the beautiful images she creates.
I hope you can take a few minutes to browse through our collection. Perhaps you will discover an image that will make a charming and beautiful decoration in your own home?
