Maud Lewis (1903 - 1970) had no formal training in the visual arts. Like many folk artists, she painted for the joy of adding colour, light, and fun to a poverty-stricken rural existence in Digby County, Nova Scotia. Maud’s tiny painted house, together with her artworks and painted artifacts, are on permanent exhibition in the Scotiabank Maud Lewis Gallery at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
