Elesa Bennett 

Elesa started her career studying graphic design and working in advertising for various agencies. During the 80’s and up until today, she has undertaken numerous art workshops and tuition at Willoughby Arts Centre, where she has focused on drawing and painting using a variety of mediums, exploring her fascination with marks and colour.

 A well-travelled painter, Elesa has journeyed to Arnhem Land, the Kimberly, Broome and then overseas to Morocco, Mallorca, Turkey, Greece, The Maldives, India and most recently the Flinders Ranges. She draws great inspiration from her travels, painting on location and upon return. Her paintings are in many private collections worldwide.
