Gina Ortiz is a Mexican - Canadian illustrator land printmaker living in Vancouver. Her work reflects on themes of journey and freedom with bright and bold use of colour.

She developed a style by mixing traditional printmaking techniques with a hand-drawing and playful quality allowing some creative imperfections to show in her work.
The inspiration for her artwork comes from nature’s oddities that she captures through close- up photography, observation and memory.

Her work alternates between printmaking techniques and paper collage using wax crayons, inks and acrylics on paper or canvas. Her work has been selected by the DVBIA Street Banners in 2020 and by the City of Vancouver Public Art Catalogue in 2022.

Gina studied Architecture at Universidad de Monterrey in Mexico where she grew up. After relocating to Vancouver in 2011, Gina complemented her practice with art related courses such as: Illustration for Picture Books, Screen-printing, Woodcut Color Block printing, Tapestry Weaving, Acrylic painting and others. She is an active member at Malaspina Printmaker Society studio on Granville Island, Vancouver BC.
