Averill-Green has been exhibiting her artwork in galleries and museums in upstate New York for over 40 years. She became a member of the Piermont Flywheel Gallery, Piermont NY, in 2010. She received her B.A. in Art from Russell Sage College in Troy, N.Y. and her M.S. in Art Education from the College of St. Rose in Albany, N.Y. She has studied with several notable artists including Stanley Bielen, Catherine Kehoe, Michael Oatman and Barbara Mungall. Her stylistic range varies from representational to abstract. Averill-Green states, “During the day, I enjoy painting still-lifes, capturing the natural light. When evening comes, I entertain myself by layering colors and textures to obtain interesting and often playful images. Once in a while, I combine the two styles. No matter which style I am painting in, I try to abide by the words of Monet, ʻ When you go
out to paint, try to forget what objects you have before you….merely think here is a little blue square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow, and paint it just as it looks to you.ʼ ” Her work is included in private and corporate collections.
