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.
