Gayle Halliwell is an artist, sculptor, writer, and facilitator. Through her visual arts
practice, Gayle captures the energy and mystery of the lake, land and skyscapes of the Interlake in unique water media and ceramic sculpture. She has a lifelong connection to Lake Winnipeg and its shore lands. Her forays into fabric, encaustic, and dry media are excursions of discovery. Driven to creating works that speak to the energy and mystery of our prairie ocean, Gayle hopes to inspire in the viewer a love for and commitment to protecting this unique environment.
Studio 410 is the recently created workspace for artist Gayle Halliwell. Located in the lakeside resort of Winnipeg Beach, Gayle’s studio is in the heart of the Interlake’s arts community. Using found, repurposed, and recycled materials, Gayle has turned a neglected cottage into year-round arts space that encourages imagination, inspiration, and motivation—all on a shoe-string budget. Studio 410 is open to the public during The WAVE Artists’ Studio Tour weekends, or by appointment and chance the rest of the year.
Gayle has always wanted to swim in creativity. Her immersion into artistic endeavours began in earnest in 2006, and she hasn’t put down her palette since. With over a thousand hours spent in pools of paint and islands of clay, Gayle has developed an energetic, confident and straightforward approach to her visual arts work. Gayle makes her debut on The WAVE Artists’ Studio Tour in 2013 (www.watchthewave.ca). She is a member of the Gimli Art Club, Arts & Culture Manitoba, and The Gwen Fox Gallery.
