Richard Jerzy was a well-known watercolor artist in the Detroit, Michigan area. His signature works were figures and still lives, and many famous Michigan families are collectors.
He was probably the most promising, successful, exciting artist in the state of Michigan, said Miriam Parel, a fellow artist and friend for more than 30 years.
He grew up on Detroit's east side and developed an interest in painting as a teenager. He attended Detroit's Center for Creative Studies. The fine arts institution later hired him as a painting professor, a position he held for about 30 years.
