Born into a family of artists, March Avery began making her own work daily by age two—sculpting, painting and drawing. As she recalls “My father did not teach me. He was a very non-verbal painter. I would show him one of my paintings and all he would say was ‘paint another.’ The only advice I can remember him giving me was not to go to art school—and I didn’t.” March went on to evolve a style that is distinctly original, emerging from direct observation of the visual world. Both her parents created art with constancy and intensity, and with March at their side. Her work ethic and dedication to art show the same passion and discipline. March Avery lives in New York City, close to her son, the painter Sean A. Cavanaugh, his wife, and their daughter.
