The Full Story
About The Artist
DMZ Designs began in November of 1989. She started in a small 500 sq. foot store in Narberth, Pa. where she actually painted on the counter between customers. Since opening, she has moved twice, been flooded out 3 times, and redesigned an amazing new website. Her beautiful designs are now available online and displays and sells her designs at her home shows!
Donna M. Zenobi, is the owner and designer and has paint in her veins! As a child when she couldn't be found, inevitably, was off somewhere with paint, clay or crayons in her hands. Encouraged to keep her creative juices flowing, she was able to parlay her love of creating into a wonderful career. With a great eye for color and design, she works daily on creating new gifts and home decor!
With her passion to support American artists, being a "starving artist" herself, she buys from artists all over the country and designs her own patterns to supply the website! DMZ Designs is 94% American made and diligently working to the 100% mark!
Starting with drawing a pattern and with the help of two woodcutters, her designs come to life. From start to finish, Donna has her hands in it, literally. Whether it be designing, display, or event planning there isn't one area of the business that she isn't involved in. Whether you visit her local show or enjoy the website, Donna hopes that you enjoy what she loves to do as much as she does!
DMZ Designs works from her studio and home in Havertown, Pa and plans to hold 4 shows a year!
