Jerzy Werbel attended the University of Education and Art in Poland where his career began as a painter. After several years of developing work in Poland he decided to embark on a drastic resettlement to Canada through Germany. After a very difficult move, he established a studio space in the South West Region of Ontario. During this time he developed a noteworthy perspective of his newly acquired homeland and neighboring United States. During the next 20 years Jerzy would travel across Canada, the US and the world indulging in the lush visual landscapes and interpreting them in his own impressionistic painting style.
