Description

Rated PG-13 | 2017 | 1h 56m

Maudie yearns to be independent from her protective family. She answers an advertisement for a housekeeper by a 40-year-old bachelor who owes nothing to anyone. She is a terrible housekeeper and spends most of her time painting. But over time, she wins his heart.

When they realize people will actually buy her cards and paintings, he supports and encourages her. Maud’s determination for her art, along with her partnership with Everett, blossoms into a career as a famous folk artist.

Maud Lewis was a Canadian folk artist from Nova Scotia and she is the 2019 honouree for Nova Scotia Heritage Day. This programming series celebrates Maud Lewis, her contributions to Nova Scotia’s 
artistic history, and our rich and diverse artistic community.
