Irish painter Clifford Collie attended the National College of Art and Design. His evocative paintings are closely connected with his personal understanding of nature and the self. Collie has exhibited in Ireland and abroad since the late 1980s. He was a member of Temple Bar Gallery and Studios from 1987 to 1992. His work is represented in private and public collections, including the Office of Public Works; the Contemporary Irish Arts Society and the Maurice and Marie Foley Collection.
