A natural artist who has devoted her life to the study of Jamaican folklore, she spent several years doing research in this field; visiting the Maroons, attending old-time Tea-meetings, Religious Ceremonies, Dinkies (Wakes), Country-weddings and concerts and Field-days all over Jamaica.
She has collected Anancy stories, Jamaica folk-songs, folk-legends, proverbs, riddles and has woven these into her writings.
Miss Bennett's research and folklore creations for the Jamaican stage have helped to save much of Jamaican folk-material from extinction - and already, many of her works have been published.
Her contribution to Jamaica's cultural life has been a positive one and she has been honoured in recognition of her tremendous achievement.
