Maudie

The Artist MUST Create

Maudie is the story of Maud Dowley, a Nova Scotian constrained both physically and emotionally by juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and a well-meaning yet overprotective family. Despite the family’s lack of faith in Maud, she strikes out on her own to both assert her independence and pursue her artistic vision. As a result, she agrees to be live-in housekeeper for a recluse. Showing her characteristic persistence, she cracks his reserve as well as the world of art. This is an inspirational true story of a young woman whose artistic view of life allowed her to overcome just about anything that was thrown at her.
