"Red and Black Surprise" Art Coat by Sarah Nolan

Here's a playful piece by Sarah Nolan from the series of patterned linings that compliment the outside fabric. On the outside, she's painted large lilies in red, with smaller flower motifs scattered in between. The effect is bold on the black silk and is a lively contrast to the red silk with embroidered black dots of the lining fabric. A red and black surprise indeed!
What a great look with a black top and red slacks, or dress it down over black skinny jeans and heels with a red long sleeved stretch tee.

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.”
