Florence Broadhurst and Emma Hack

For a while now I have had a keen interest in Florence Broadhurst.

I just love her bold and vibrant designs and even after reading her biography early last year I still can't get enough! If you're not familiar with Broadhurst see Signature Prints who exclusively supply wallpapers and fabrics and Cadry's who supply rugs using Florence's designs. If your interested I recommend you read Helen O'Neill's book Florence Broadhurst Her Secret & Extraordinary Lives. The book contains a lot of imagery and certainly is an interesting read - many extraordinary lives she did have!

Last year Kate, during the Adelaide Fringe, and I went to Tincat Cafe to see Emma Hack's Exhibition called the Wallpaper Series. Emma is a world renowned artist / photographer and specialises in body art. Recently one of Emma's images from the exhibition was used in an advertisement in our local "free" paper and I was reminded of the Wallpaper Series. My day was brightened!
