North Simcoe is home to some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. For artist Murray Van Halem, that was one of the biggest draws that brought him to the shores of Georgian Bay.

With past careers in photography and real estate, Murray semi-retired to our area almost 10 years ago to follow his passion for painting.
