Making Hub Caps Into Artwork!
Sharon Zigrossi is an artist who incorporates found objects into her work. Her Blooming Hub Caps are wheel covers and hub caps that have been rescued from the side of the road and given a 2nd life as unique pieces of art. As a lifelong recycler Sharon
repurposes bottlecaps, plastic lids, buttons, corks and other things we often throw away into her works of art.␣
Her company slogan is “Recycling Trash into Flowering Treasures”. As an artist, Sharon has always loved painting flowers and eventually, she turned the found hub caps into beautiful flowers, which in turn also became other types of art objects and she evolved her art. She finds inspiration in her own garden, at work for a landscape design company and as a Dallas County Master Gardener.She has a BS in Design degree from Buffalo State College.␣
Sharon Zigrossi and her Blooming Hub Caps have been featured in the Dallas Morning News, Preston Hollow People and Preston Hollow Advocate newspapers. For more examples of Sharonís work visit: Facebook.com/BloomingHubCaps and etsy.com/bloominghubcaps.␣
