Artist Bio : Tyler Witt Mendez

Tyler Witt Mendez


I’m Tyler Witt Mendez, a 2015 Nicholls Art graduate and the first recipient of the Art Works Scholarship. Art Works sent me to Greece where I had the chance to see many pieces I had learned about during my classes at Nicholls.

I now create and reside in Houston, Texas with my husband and two pets, where I am a freelance portrait painter. On top of commissions, I am a manager of an all handmade artisan shop, Space Montrose. With the owners of Space, my husband and I started a greeting card company called Paper Vibes. My focus is creating portraits for greeting cards celebrating any occasion. If I’m not working on any of these, you can find me drinking coffee. I cannot wait to create a custom glass set for you!
