Sue Averell – Artist’s Bio
It is my intent to enable the viewer to feel the energy I put forth in the creation of my works through the use of expressive paint and color application. All of my paintings are made by applying thick, juicy layers of paint which is often wet into wet, allowing the color on top to almost melt into the layer
Rather than painting photographic imagery, I strive to create my own reality on canvas. I leave ambiguities in the finished painting so that the viewer is able to participate in the completion of the piece and see something new each time they visit the image.
Sue was born in Ohio in 1957, but her family soon moved to Southern California where she spent her childhood. Even as a child, Sue spent much of her time drawing and knew early in life that she was going to be an artist. Her signature style intrigues both new and experienced collectors. Averell’s paintings are displayed and collected world-wide, and are included in collections in London, Switzerland, France, Germany, Thailand, Singapore and the United States.
