Tina “Isola” Ritchie
Illustrator, Painter, & Storyteller
Tina is a born and raised Nashvillian with a deep love for fantasy and science fiction. After spending much of her early years exploring the forested mountains of East Tennessee, she moved to the Rocky Mountains to earn a BFA in Illustration. Since then, Tina has self-published and collaborated in multiple comic books as well as established her brand “Tina Isola.”
The enchantment of natural environments was what first drew Tina to create, and still plays a massive role in her work. Nowadays, storytelling is a primary prerogative, as she seeks to inspire and empower the individual. In contrast to a culture that overemphasizes community, her isolated characters possess hard-earned strength all their own. The “Isola” (or Island) is a sort of playground for Tina’s stories—a universe in which dreams take form, beasts roam freely, and women are the fiercest beasts of all.
