Out Of Print Creative Director Heidi Zito is Today’s Honoree

HeidiZitoHeidi is a Brooklyn based artist with roots in South Florida where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Florida State University.

She moved to New York City in 20 to pursue a Master of Fine Art in Photography Video and Related Media. Earning her MFA in 2012, she went on to become the Creative Director for Out of Print, a company specializing in showcasing literature-inspired apparel and accessories— where she currently works.

Zito’s studio is located in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn where she crafted In the Trees.

The In The Trees series transpired from a getaway to the Adirondack Mountains in Northern New York, when the hectic city life became too much for Heidi. During her retreat, Heidi stayed in a small cabin and discovered a world of natural wonders, “I was immediately in awe of the exquisite and serene beauty of the region which inspired me… In The Trees is a reflection of the quiet moments that we sometimes find amid the noise and chaos of our daily routines” says Heidi.
