Uwe Werner is a multi-faceted artist whose work ranges from
nonsubjective to realistic. Although he paints the pristine clarity of northern forests
and lakes as well as the southern and regions, his greatest reputation lies in his
realistic portrayals of the many moods of the sea which express his personal fondness for
this sometimes malevolent, mostly benevolent power of nature.
"I feel the sea is so continually changing in
its temperament; one need never paint the same scene twice. It can be warm, cool, stormy,
calm or countless combinations of these moods."
Whether Uwe paints animals, seascapes, or children, he always
conveys a sense of love and appreciation for his subjects and their individual
Uwe's paintings are widely collected throughout the world and
have been exhibited in prominent galleries in Houston and Corpus Christi, Texas; Fort
Smith, Arkansas; Scottsdale, Arizona; Seattle, Washington; Los Angeles, San Diego, Beverly
Hills, La Jolla and Uwe's own gallery in Coronado, California.
Born in Koblenz, Germany in 1942, Uwe settled in
Tacoma, Washington after coming to the United States. He studied fine arts at PLU in
Tacoma, as well as at the University of Washington in Seattle, from which he received his
degree in art.
His work has received national and local recognition in magazines
and newspapers; it was featured in Southwest Art magazine in 1979. One critic stated
"Werner brings sophistication to the seascape." Uwe doesn't present the
stereotype decorator marine scene; his direction lies in the moods that speak to the
viewer's realm of experience. His 'Feeding the Gulls' 16x22 Mixed Media Print paintings
are sought-after by art enthusiasts who wish to acquire a marine scene for their
