My name is Rhea Toye and I am an artist based in Hagley. I paint bespoke hand painted murals in homes, gardens, nurseries, schools, cafes or for anyone seeking to enhance their environment with something unique and special. Murals can transform any space into a magical world for young minds, advertise your business or give a dull room a new lease of life.
I also specialise in portraits of people and animals, as well as making handmade greeting cards.
I studied Illustration at Bristol UWE, where I focused on children's book illustration and the skills involved in narrative and sequence.
I later gained my PGCE qualification, focusing on Early Years education and the subject co-ordination of art and display. It was during my teaching career my passion for mural art came to life, as I began creating murals within the school.
Portrait drawing is something I have always loved and the striking effect of a pencil sketch. I can however complete portraits using acrylic if you are looking for a colour finish.
Wall murals, portraits and greeting cards are my speciality. But if you require an artist for any project, then please call or e mail me to discuss your desires. Maybe you would like some hand drawn artwork for an invitation or merchandise for your business. I would love to hear from you and help your ideas come to life.
I hope you enjoy exploring my website!
