ART

unique Zipper Art
Donna Jean Petrell embraced environmentally friendly art production long before it became trendy to be green.  She uses only the zipper teeth of recycled zippers to create the amazing landscapes, fantastic florals, and colorful abstract textures exhibited here. Each piece is a completely original, one-of-a-kind design.
