Gayle Dempsey, a 4th generation Muskokan, feels a deep connection to the spirit of the land, the lakes, the natural beauty and the peace that is Muskoka. Capturing the soul of place, Gayle’s work connects with her roots. Loose underpaintings give way to structural details as her passion is revealed.
