One of Canada’s most beloved folk artists, Maud Lewis (1903 – 1970) painted delightful, childlike images of animals and outdoor scenes. Though she had a difficult life of illness and poverty, she enjoyed the creative process and took great pride in her work. Lewis's house and a group of her paintings form part of a permanent exhibition at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
