About Ethne Benn
Ethne has been an artist for 30 years. She started out as a representational artist working in oils and was featured in galleries in her native Johannesburg, South Africa. After immigrating to Australia in 2008, Ethne began her meaningful journey leaning more into abstract art. She has been an active participant in exhibitions across Australia and has sold many of her works. Her journey into abstraction has influenced her more realistic work. Her latest series of wild roses and the reef is very loose and expressive and almost lyrical.
After decades of constant striving to paint freely and spontaneously, Ethne is finally able to draw from within and produces fresh and exciting results through self-expression.
As well as teaching art, Ethne exhibits and sells her art at various exhibitions around Australia was a finalist in the KAAF art prize in November 2016.
