It hit me this week that I’ve been painting and making visual art seriously for 12 years now! What started as an escape from the built up anxiety that I endured as the mother of two Iraq War veterans (and both infantrymen, at that), has evolved into my lifelong vocation.

With that in mind, I wanted to share one of my favorite and quirkiest of all works with you: Rainhat Lady.

This one work, Rainhat Lady, illustrates my quest for trying new things: new processes, materials, formats. It’s a simple little work, but one I’m so tied to it hangs in my entryway!

By Maura Satchell, contemporary artist and writer

Contemporary artist, seeker, writer. Curious to a fault. I let the fates take me where they will and never say no to an adventure. That has led me on some heart-stirring journeys and impetuous choices. I regret nothing.
