You’ll find her paintings in the collections of museums, corporations, executives,

“Cortney Wall is a superb artist. Cortney recently performed at two Building Homes for Heroes charitable events. One of which was our Annual Honoree Dinner that took place in June in New York at the beautiful Battery Gardens Restaurant. The other event took place in August at our Annual Long Island Golf Outing at the Rockville Links Country Club in Rockville Centre. Cortney created two beautiful patriotic inspired paintings. The paintings were auctioned off at the end of the evening at both events and helped raised funds for Building Homes for Heroes. Thank you Cortney for your support, interest and devotion to our Veterans. We commend you. We look forward to seeing you next year!”

"Cortney is an incredible artist, truly talented and inspiring for all ages. She recently led the 2020 Orioles Youth Community Art Workshop during our Fifth Annual Athletes and Artists Charity Weekend in Sarasota, Florida. Cortney led children ranging from the ages 5 to 17 from the Face Autism organization in creating their own "Dream Jersey." We commend Cortney for her support and dedication to help and inspire children explore and practice their interest in the arts. We look forward to partnering with her in the future to raise awareness regarding the Baltimore Orioles Foundation initiatives in promoting and supporting art's education in the Sarasota and Baltimore community."
