Reason for Reading: I'm a fan of picture book biographies and Maud Lewis is a favourite Canadian artist of mine.

Maud Lewis is a Canadian folk artist from Nova Scotia. She is often known as what is commonly called an "outsider" artist as she painted for the pure joy of it, on anything she got her hands on, despite her physical limitations, without any formal training and though she did sell her paintings it was more because the buyers sought her out than she sought to find buyers.

This is a lovely little biography with just enough information to give anyone a brief introduction to Maud Lewis' life and artwork. For the majority of the book every right-hand side page includes a photographic reproduction of one of Maud's paintings giving a well rounded look at several of her styles and themes. An entertaining book that could easily cause an older reader to want to explore Maud's work and life in greater length and detail. A great addition to shelves on Canadian artists.

Very good artist. She painted what she saw and her animals are delightfully happy ones. Inspite of her handicaps, she made the world a better place.
