Maud Lewis

Maud Lewis (1903-1970) is a well known Nova Scotian artist. She was an autodidact who lived with her husband in a tiny little house in Digby. This little house she decorated meticulously, almost every inch she covered with her painted ornaments. It has after her death been moved to the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax. The exhibition of Marie Lewis' paintings and her restored house is well worth a visit.


Maud Lewis is a popular artist and her naive paintings are well loved and copied. Below to the right you find an attempt on my part together with two pictures that I made from the waterfront in Port Lorne; one in acrylic and one in water colour.
