Working from her studio in Co. Meath, Orla de Brí is very much a hands-on sculptor, enjoying every aspect of the work, from the concept of the first drawing through to the varied and sometimes challenging physical processes.  Her unique, elegantly stylized figures and objects, in a variety of materials, including bronze, steel, stone and fibreglass are familiar to many.


De Brí has had six major solo shows and completed 26 site-specific, large-scale public sculpture commissions in Ireland, London and Istanbul. Other collections include the University of Limerick, Bank of Ireland, Aer Rianta, Dublin City University and The Office of Public Works. De Brí is also in many significant private collections both nationally and internationally.
