"Painting is a gift. Working with great people is my passion. Being fortunate enough to make an impact partnering with charitable causes is my purpose." -Cortney Wall
Cortney Wall is one of the few female sports artists in the country. Her work has been commissioned by some of the top athletes and organizations in the sports world, including the New York Yankees, the NFL, the USTA Foundation, and the Negro League Baseball Museum.
You’ll find her paintings in the collections of museums, corporations, executives and philanthropists.
Her passion, presence and unique style of painting using sports equipment (such as footballs, baseball bats, hockey sticks and tennis balls), have added an unforgettable angle to numerous events and fundraisers. And, most importantly, her artwork has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities across the county.
Cortney has appeared on numerous TV and radio programs, most notably, MLB network where she was interviewed with eleven of her paintings on Martin Luther King Day, 2015 (and 2017) discussing the Negro Leagues as inspiration for those works of art.
She is most proud of her partnership with Fanatics and a proud philanthropic partner with with The Women's Sports Museum, The Joe Namath Charitable Foundation, The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, The Players Alliance, Building Homes for Heroes, The Baltimore Orioles Foundation, The Ferguson Jenkins Foundation, Bernie Williams and the All Star Band (IPF Awareness), The Culinary Kickoff, The Perfect 33 Foundation, The David Cone Foundation, The Git-R-Done Foundation, The Chris Canty Foundation, Morristown Memorial Hospital, and lastly the Hackensack University Medical Center where five of her murals are hanging to uplift the patients and all who pass through the halls of the hospital.
“Cortney Wall is a superb artist. Cortney recently performed at two Building Homes for Heroes charitable events. One of which was our Annual Honoree Dinner that took place in June in New York at the beautiful Battery Gardens Restaurant. The other event took place in August at our Annual Long Island Golf Outing at the Rockville Links Country Club in Rockville Centre. Cortney created two beautiful patriotic inspired paintings. The paintings were auctioned off at the end of the evening at both events and helped raised funds for Building Homes for Heroes. Thank you Cortney for your support, interest and devotion to our Veterans. We commend you. We look forward to seeing you next year!” -Carolyn Paszke, Director of Special Events and Corporate Relations, Building Homes for Heroes
"Cortney is an incredible artist, truly talented and inspiring for all ages. She recently led the 2020 Orioles Youth Community Art Workshop during our Fifth Annual Athletes and Artists Charity Weekend in Sarasota, Florida. Cortney led children ranging from the ages 5 to 17 from the Face Autism organization in creating their own "Dream Jersey." We commend Cortney for her support and dedication to help and inspire children explore and practice their interest in the arts. We look forward to partnering with her in the future to raise awareness regarding the Baltimore Orioles Foundation initiatives in promoting and supporting art's education in the Sarasota and Baltimore community."
