"From time to time in the world of art, there emerges someone with an extraordinary talent that sets them apart from their contemporaries and affords them a special place in the hearts of those who come in contact with their work. Maud Lewis was such an artist.

Her field of endeavour was folk art, a term used to describe a naive, untutored art form; yet her paintings exhibit the same qualities as those of all great artists - perfect balance and harmony, a masterful use of colour and light, an inspired simplicity.

Without access to standard art materials, Maud rendered her works with marine or house paints on particleboard or cardboard with crude bristle brushes. For a palette she used sardine tins. None of this, however, hindered her ability to capture the essence of her subjects, to infuse them with life, dignity, and meaning.

The circumstances of her life were primitive as well. Her studio was a small, one-room dwelling she shared with her husband that lacked the most basic amenities. Nonetheless, she transcended both the deprivation in her surroundings and her physical deformities to create a world of joy and contentment where the ordinary activities and participants in everyday life leave nothing to be desired." -from the front flap.
