Australian Fairies Artist

Ethel Jackson Morris 1891 -1985

Ethel exhibited with the Victorian Artists Society in Australia her work was usually singled out for praise in the critiques of the day.

Here exhibition profile stand out in direct contrast to her sydney counterparts, for example May gibbs who was the most professional trained illustator on the sydney scene never sought an exhibiting career.
In 1921 she held a solo exhibition which featured 75 pen and ink and watercolour works.

She married in 1930 and withdrew from the art world entirely and her illustrative carrer came to an end and Australia had lost one of its most promising fantasy artists.
