Home Town of Maud Lewis

picture of Maud Lewis


Maud Lewis was a folk artist from Nova Scotia. She remains one of Canada’s best-known folk artists.

Born on the Yarmouth and Acadian Shore of Nova Scotia in 1903, Maud spent most of her time alone, mostly because she felt uncomfortable about her differences around the other children. She began her artistic career by selling hand-drawn and painted Christmas cards.

Screenwriter Sherry White wrote a script for a film about Lewis, entitled Maudie which made its Canadian debut at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival.

In Yarmouth, Maud lived on Hawthorne Street.
