Esther Wertheimer

Born in Poland, Esther Wertheimer has lived most of her life in Montreal. But, her quest for artistic excellence has inspired her to study and work in many corners of the world.

     Like her sculpture, she is constantly in motion maintaining studios in Montreal and Florida as well as returning to Italy for several months each year to work in the artists' colony of Pietrasanta. She also travels extensively to many other cities where her works are exhibited.
