Maud Lewis is one of several artists in Barbara’s repertoire.

Barbara owns several original

Christmas cards painted by Maud Lewis. The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, owner of the Maud Lewis

copyright, has given her a license to produce and sell patterns of the Christmas card images. These

images are unique to Barbara and not available elsewhere. In addition, the Gallery has given

permission for many additional Maud Lewis images.

About Maud Lewis

Maud Lewis (1903-1970) is one of Canada’s most outstanding folk artists. Her whimsical and universally appealing scenes of her life in rural Nova Scotia are alive with colour, movement and intimacy, evoking memories of our own happy childhoods. For more about Maud Lewis: https://www.artgalleryofnovascotia.ca/maud-lewis/ You might also be interested in the movie Maudie: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3721954/

These

images are unique to Barbara and not available elsewhere. In addition, the Gallery has given

permission for many additional Maud Lewis images.

For all artists Barbara chooses to translate, she first gets permission, from the artist, or from the

copyright owner if the artist is no longer alive. She then prepares the images so that they are suitable to each textile art form, enabling textile artists to apply their chosen method to the image. Only the best materials, such as linen backing and 100% wool, are used to duplicate the artworks. This ensures superior quality and durability for the longer term.

A rug hooker since the early 1980’s, Barbara Lukas is a member of the Ontario Hooking Craft Guild, The International Guild of Handhooking Rugmakers and Vermont’s Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild. Her work has been exhibited at the Canadian Museum of History and the Shelburne Museum in Burlington, Vermont and appears in several rug hooking books and magazines (See Rug Hooking Magazine for September/October 2012). Her love of fibres and textures has moved her to add multi-media features to her rug hooking, and to explore other textile arts such as wool appliqué, punch hooking, embroidery, and felting.
