About: Artist Devon Lynn (age 5) is nono by noelle’s inspiration and featured artist for the 2011/2012 collection. Each season nono by noelle sponsors young artists in cancer treatment and encourages fine art as an outlet by supplying canvases, paints and brushes to bring life to their creativity. The hope is that through the art scholarships children will be inspired to create and love art during a difficult time in their lives.
Devon is an active and passionate painter. In 2010, at the age of 4, she was a featured artist in two major fundraising projects- Circus Couture and I Am Snowboarding - and she did it all while enduring intensive chemotherapy treatment for leukemia. Devon was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of 22 months. The next two and half years of her young life included countless chemotherapy treatments, doctor and hospital visits. During this time, her passion for painting served as a creative outlet. She’s a tough little girl and bravely fought those two and a half years. Devon is currently in remission as of her last treatment, June 2010. Inspired by Devon’s courage and creativity, her mother Jamie Weniger and long-time friend and designer Noelle Vazzano decided to utilize her gift to help other children battling childhood cancer. Devon’s collection of paintings on canvas and skateboard decks using acrylic paints and paint pens have been digitized and the prints sublimated onto nylon/Lycra swimwear fabric. The resulting fabric for nono by noelle is vivid and rich in color and design, entirely unique and for all young girls.
nono by noelle embraces at least one child as the collection’s featured artist and display their artwork on the fabrics of the new season’s swimwear. A portion of all the proceeds from the sales will be donated to childhood cancer research. All of nono by noelle’s swimsuits are UV protected UPF 50+ and available in sizes XXS (2-3), XS(4-5), S(6-7), M(8-9) and L(10-12). nono by noelle is proudly made with love in the USA.
