Maud Lewis lived in a tiny house by the side of the road near Digby, Nova Scotia. Although lacking many of the amenities of modern living, she painted happy genre pictures and memories of days gone by; much of this work by lamplight. Brought to National prominence via CBC TV “Telescope”, the “Star Weekly, Chatelaine”, the “Atlantic Advocate”, “Canadian Living”, “Readers Digest”, radio, TV and other media, Maud was unable to supply the demand for her work. Since her death in 1970 the value of her paintings has escalated many fold and her paintings are avidly sought by collectors.

Maud was self-taught and had an innate sense of composition and use of direct colour. She was a true professional in the vernacular style and her work is a continuing source of delight to viewers everywhere.
