Artists Florence Broadhurst and Emma Hack

Color me breathless. First I discover the patterns of Florence Broadhurst--of whom apparently everyone has heard but I. The one above is called Horses Stampede, and I think it is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. And I'm not even a horse person, particularly. Horses Stampede is available as wallpaper at Borderline Fabrics.

Then, the same night, I discover what body artist Emma Hack has done with some of Broadhurst's patterns (with the permission of her estate):

Breathless? Heck, I'm almost speechless.

Hey, if it makes you feel better, I've never heard of Florence Broadhurst either - and I totally agree, her prints are gooooorgeous.
Just found your blog, by the way, and think it's such fun!
