Hello! I'm Christy, a freelance illustrator and writer from New England. Heavily influenced by mythology, classic sci-fi and fantasy, and strong, amazing ladies who have inspired me since I was small, I create illustrations and comic art with the intent of creating dynamic, inspiring characters with a story behind each of them. 

Having completed my BFA in Illustration at the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University in Boston, I have also recently completed my MFA in Creative Writing for Children at Simmons College. Along with being an illustrator, I am also a writer, both ghostwriting for clients and working on multiple novels, as well as one graphic novel script. Because one novel just isn't enough, clearly. 


For commissions/inquiries, please send me an email at christytort@gmail.com.

Inspired by the fantastical, Christy Tortland is a children's illustrator with a special love for fantasy, folklore, and adventurous heroes.
