Forty years of collecting: a love affair with Australiana, David Bedford & Jennifer Stuerzl
David Bedford and Jennifer Stuerzl reflect on the pleasures of 40 years of collecting Australiana. Jennifer is a practising artist, painter, print and artist’s book maker and curates international print shows. David was trained as a botanist and became Director of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens before transferring to the private sector and managing a family-owned business. Now retired, David and Jennifer work collaboratively for the Australiana Society in Queensland and on art-science collaborations, while David writes articles for Australiana as well as doing wood-turning and cabinet-making as a hobby.
