The Zipper Lady's Profile

About

Heather Merritt of Ortonville Michigan is the talent and creative mind behind Re-Zip It! Through her love for art, design, fashion and recycling she creates unique pieces using recycled vintage zippers. Her journey began while working as a therapist, treating substance abusing offenders. She realized that she needed a healthy stress release and a way to process all the negative energy that she dealt with on a daily basis. This is where her art work allowed her to release all her negative energy through expressing her feelings and emotions in a positive manner. Creating beauty out of something so unappealing, just like she did in therapy.
