The History of Pastel Art Prints
It 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 small 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 of the pastel paintings they reproduced 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 modest living, reproducing some of her pictures 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 pastel art she creates.
Since then I have been lucky enough to meet Linda Finch and Kate Collins; two wonderful and talented artists who have agreed to join the Pastel Art Prints family.
I envy them their talent and am immensely grateful that they have given me the opportunity to showcase their work on this web site.
I hope you will be as delighted by their pastel paintings as I continue to be.
