Orla has gone on to create sought-after painting collections, regularly turning popular band like Heinz, Guinness, Tayto and Jacobs in iconic art images. Widely acclaimed for her quirky style and creative execution, Orla Walsh’s paintings are included in many private Irish art collections, and her original work is also owned by a wide range of celebrities from rock, pop and movies stars to international sports stars around the globe
