Murray Van Halem is an oil painter who is inspired by the rural landscapes of Ontario. He also creates portraits of people who he has come to know. Using the generous qualities that oil paints enrich us with, he creates paintings exhibiting bold strokes and radiant colours.
A visual artist for over 45 years, Murray started his career as a large-format commercial photographer. He has worked as a photojournalist, portrait photographer, magazine editor, writer and real estate broker. Drawing from those life experiences, Murray now paints daily at his studio in Victoria Harbour, Ontario or plein air in the countryside.
