Jerzy Werbel attended the University of Poland, studying Education and Art, where his career as a painter was initiated. After several years of developing work in Poland he decided to embark on a drastic resettlement to Canada 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 he would traveled across Canada indulging in the lush visual landscapes, and enjoying his freedom. Jerzy now continues his explorations throughout this country, which he now calls his own. Received a master’s degree in education from University of Szczecin in Poland.
