Werner R. Plangg was born in Zurich, Switzerland in November 1933.  At an early age, he began to show his love for nature in pencil sketches, rough clay sculptures and paintings.  At the age of five he and his family moved to the countryside of Lake Zurich and this prompted Werner’s precocious interest in animals and nature.

He took his art training at the School of Fine Arts in Zurich and received full scholarship for all courses.  He excelled in the fields of anatomy, medical illustration and scientific drawing.  After his graduation, he spent a few years traveling in Europe, and studied under W.D. Mattman in Zurich and also in Paris.

In 1956, he emigrated to Canada and after working at Sunshine Village ski resort, he made Calgary AB his home.
