She is female and the photo is the work of Kamée.

"Tortie" is short for tortoiseshell. Tortoiseshell is a type of coat cat pattern and color amongst other things.

You can't see a tortie coat in the pointing but the genes that created this form of Siamese cat pointing are the same or similar to those that create full blown tortie cat coats.

Tortoiseshell cats are nearly always female due to the gene being sex-linked. Tortie and tabby pointing is a modern concept. It leaves very subtle pointing far removed from the original seal point which is a solid (self) color.
