Bennett is a recent graduate of the California College of the Arts in San Francisco where she obtained her M.F.A.
She states: “My practice ranges across disparate processes including collaborative embroideries and botanical watercolor painting, united by an attitude of listening and orienting through practice. Botanical painting is an exercise in wonder for me. It is a way to measure the quality of attention I am paying to the world. I also use botanical painting as a way to locate myself in my environment. I often title my paintings using the location where I find them—growing near my studio, for sale at Home Depot—or the person I associate with them. In this way I can feel I am not merely a creature of my zip code or my address. I feel I am just a human who lives with these plants. I was inspired by poet Hazel WhiteÍs plant-naming project at the Berkeley Botanical Garden, Botanica Recognita: Signage to Facilitate a Greeting. Her plan, and mine, is to take nothing for granted about an encounter with another living thing.”
