Ms. Ortiz has added another layer to her career as a professional designer and artist. Inspired to take on the role of a photo artist, she creates images that are both sensual and dramatic in nature. The dynamics between the positive and negative spaces along with the texture of realism and abstract forms are remarkable. Her instinctive bold compositions ultimately lead us to the heart of her subjects and the story they dare to reveal -- a process she accepts vigorously as a way of capturing the present without losing the true essences of the moment.
