Jerzy Werbel attended the University of Education and Art in Poland, where his career as a painter began. After several years of developing work in Poland he decided to embark on a drastic resettlement to Canada by way of going through Germany.
After a considerably 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. Over the next 20 years, Jerzy travelled across Canada, indulging in the lush visual landscapes of freedom. Jerzy currently continues his travels though a land he now calls his own.
