...a visual artist specializing in the lake, sky and landscapes of Lake Winnipeg using watercolour, acrylics, and clay. 


When not on her live-aboard boat Solitude VI, she’s splashing pigment and squishing clay at Studio 410. Morning coffee and sunrise over the lake start her day. Ancestry anchors her to this shore; her close connection to the Lake comes from decades of experience afloat and a lifetime on shore.  Gayle creates award-winning works that explore the stunning beauty and the environmental challenges of her great prairie ocean.

Manitoba Rural & Northern Show

Summer 2017

Invitation-only showing of regional winners.

I have lake water in my veins! It flows out from my brush onto canvas and paper creating lake, land and skyscapes of Lake Winnipeg.

I create images that explore both the immense and microscopic forces of the lake--physical and metaphysical.

My paintings and clay works represent the conversation that has whispered to me through the lap of waves: an exchange between beauty and fragility.  I  honour the past, highlight the beauty, and worry about the future through my works. ​
