Florence Broadhurst lived many lives, as a singer, comedian, painter, businesswoman and designer, before her violent death at age 76. But what endures is her design and print work on wallpapers, drapery, fabrics and screens. Indeed, her work has never been more in demand.
Her legacy seems secure, with responsibility shared between Sydney commercial outfit Signature Prints and the Powerhouse Museum. Signature Prints is headed by husband and wife team David and Helen Lennie, who manufacture the designs and licence them to others. Among their many designers, Broadhurst is the company's main game.
