"Pick-Up Sticks" Art Coat by Sarah Nolan

Here is another of Sarah Nolan's wonderful limited edition design series where she creates an "allover" pattern of painted visual elements with enough space between to let the beauty of the silk background shine too. With "Pick Up Sticks" she paints varying lengths of colored bars arranged at random and looking just like the playful game we grew up with. Whether on magenta or burnt orange, the effect is whimsical and flexible enough to be worn to a dressy occasion over basic black or simply out to lunch with friends over leggings or jeans. Put a bounce in your step with "Pick Up Sticks!"

Magenta or burnt orange shantung silk shell
with silver or gold shantung silk lining.

Shown here with painting on both silver
inside and magenta outside. Have your
tailor or dry cleaner remove the labels 
for a reversible two coats in one!
Sarah Nolan's Bio

Santa Fe, New Mexico

“I was born in Mississippi and had a childhood that included eating fried chicken (yum!), fishing for bass, and swinging on wisteria vines.”

“I Moved to New York City after college and began a different life working in tall gray buildings, wearing gray/black/blue clothes and getting an MBA at night at NYU. I spent endless hours at a top consulting firm restructuring really big companies.”

“The next phase of my career began as a corporate innovator/rejuvenator and CEO. I restructured two large financial subsidiaries and three very small internet companies. Then I stopped and became a consultant for non-profit organizations.”

One day, pneumonia caught me and I thought I would die. When I got better I began to paint seven days a week to learn how to make art. I learned to paint on non-traditional fabrics with objects in addition to paintbrushes. I went to India to learn wood block printing and to paint clothing.”

“While living in New York City, prior to attending a women’s luncheon, I decided I was tired of wearing traditional dull-colored suits and made a brightly painted silk coat to wear. Other attendees wanted to know where they could get one, and Singular Couture was born.”

I love painting original pieces of clothing. Now I have the additional fun of finding talented artists to add to our roster of artists who paint pieces for Singular Couture.”
