Werner was born in Austria in 1943 and migrated to Australia in 1950. His love for this country is imbued in his superb style of crisp and refreshing paintings.
He is a dedicated traditionalist artist, painting mainly in oils. After initially specialising in rural and coastal scenes, Werner has broadened his subjects to include figures.
His distinct, unique style is always popular with art collectors and many overseas visitors and as a result, paintings adorn the walls of homes in many countries.
The demand for traditional art has not diminished and is evident in the great success of Werner's many exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide - each of which has sold-out.
Werner is an exhibiting member of the Royal Art Society of NSW and has represented NSW for five major works to tour Germany, sponsored by Qantas.
Werner's latest achievement was being awarded the honour of becoming a Fellow of The Australian Institute of History and Arts.
