Artist: Wendy Felicite Walsh (1915 to 2014). Wendy Walsh was one of Ireland’s foremost botanical artists. She was born in Cumbria but moved to Ireland in 1958. In 1999, she and her husband moved to near Burtown House, in Athy, Co. Kildare, where there is now a permanent exhibition of some of her work. Wendy Walsh won many prestigious awards in the 80’s and 90’s and was conferred with an honorary doctorate from Trinity College in 1997. She produced artwork for 15 books on Ireland’s flora and fauna and illustrated stamps for the Irish postal service. In 1999, she was nominated as the first member of The Irish Society Of Botanical Artists.

By setting a proxy bid, the system will automatically bid on your behalf to maintain your position as the highest bidder, up to your proxy bid amount. If you are outbid, you will be notified via email so you can opt to increase your bid if you so choose.
If two of more users place identical bids, the bid that was placed first takes precedence, and this includes proxy bids.
Another bidder placed an automatic proxy bid greater or equal to the bid you have just placed. You will need to bid again to stand a chance of winning.
