    Art Prints and Wall Art

    Once a struggling artist, these days Emily Holsman earns a living while she sleeps.
    For years the Mornington Peninsula based artist has been selling a handful of paintings and prints to friends and family. She also distributes a range of greeting cards and bookmarks to local retailers.
    She may have barely scraped by but everything changed when she started marketing her paintings as limited edition prints on the internet.
    Emily’s web site has taken her work to the world and she is now selling dozens of prints every week to people in the USA and throughout Europe and Asia.
    ‘I am just staggered by the response’ Emily says. ‘It’s like a dream come true and happily it shows no sign of slowing down.’
