“Owning a portrait work of Tidy’s is like having a friend who we can identify with. Her extraordinary paintings of everyday ordinary people, reminds each one of us how important human connection is to the soul. It is to know that as ordinary people, we all have and live extraordinary lives. – Lisette Otero-Lewis
Tidy, a New York City native, is a fine-arts graduate of School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. Her work has been exhibited in solo shows in New York galleries, and she has won competitions in four states. Tidy has also worked as a set designer for several off-Broadway theater productions, and as a finisher specializing in faux marble and Venetian plaster. Her bespoke murals adorn the walls of many New York metropolitan area residents and their children.
Her commercial mural clients include the McDonalds Corporation (for which she designed and executed a mural based on Matisse’s The Dance), American Express and Sunglass Hut, for which she created the prototype design and personally executed installations in over 250 stores across North America.
