“As long as there’s a brush in front of me, I’m alright.” – Maud Lewis

Maud Lewis holds a special place in the hearts of many Canadians. One time, a relatively unknown and unrecognized artist, the last decade has seen Lewis’ artwork undergo tremendous growth in not just value but in recognition and understanding.

Née Dowley, (March 7, 1903 – July 30, 1970), Lewis was a Nova Scotia-born Canadian folk artist. She spent the majority of her life in poverty, living in a modest home in Marshalltown, outside of Digby, Nova Scotia with her husband Everett Lewis. During her lifetime, she sold her paintings from $2 to $10 each, which would equal about $20 to $100 today with inflation. Despite unjust economic and physical limitations, Maud Lewis developed an appreciable and beloved painting style. Her joyful artwork of landscapes, animals, and flowers presented a nostalgic and optimistic view of her native home and land. Lewis’ famously shadowless paintings endeavoured to create beauty in an otherwise harsh environment.

Maud Lewis’ fame began to bloom in the mid-1960s, first with a CBC Telescope feature, then later receiving international attention from the United States White House. Her artwork’s compelling nature has seemed to prevail over her misfortunes. Today, Lewis has been the subject of several novels, plays, and films. She is now known for her unique and personal contribution to Canadian art history and is regarded as one of Canada’s most acclaimed folk artists.
