WELCOME TO THE JOAN WALSH GALLERY 

Spreading Joy through Art by creating, designing and teaching.  

For as long as I can remember I have always loved to draw and paint. Born and raised in Ireland, I then moved to the island of Martha's Vineyard, U.S.A where I lived for many years and now reside in London. Art has always been a part of my journey, it is in my blood. My father gave me a gift of a paintbrush 35 years ago which still holds a proud place in my paintbox. While raising my children, I painted them regularly, resulting in a visual diary of our lives. I paint almost daily and believe it is important to make a living doing what you love. Having taught art to elderly people for a long time, I witnessed the joy that creating a painting gave them. Art can indeed be therapeutic and rewarding to both the artist and the viewer!

CONTACT ME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ART CLASSES. 

I have illustrated several childrens books and learned a great deal through researching for the illustrations I created to express the author's story.
Art is an important part of life in many ways, just imagine how life would be without it... 

Commissions include paintings in Watercolors, Acrylics and Oils in Ireland and the U.S.A. At the National College of Art and Design, Ireland I studied stained glass and executed several works, including windows for a Novitiate in Dublin, Ireland.

My prices range from $12 for the book 'A Little Girl,A Little Lamb.', $15 for some prints and up to $3000 for original illustrations.
