Rhea Bailey was born in Nicosia, where she lives and works. She studied in England at Sir John Cass School of Art (1964-65) and obtained a BA Honours in Art and Design from Liverpool College of Art, UK (1965-69).
Since 1971 she has had 35 solo exhibitions in Cyprus, UK, USA, Greece and Spain and has participated in over 50 group exhibitions, art festivals, art workshops, art competitions and congresses in many countries. Her works are part of major public and private collections all over the world and she has received many international awards.
Bailey’s paintings reflect new aspects of the artistic experience and contribution to contemporary art. Rhea is among the few Cypriot artists who crossed the boundaries of the established traditions in Art and revealed the possibilities of a new personal approach. Her work has been considered a vehicle that 'transfers us to other dimensions from where we can draw perfection’ and that it ‘provides a conceptual bridge to contemporary art forms'.
Her work can be found in many public and private collections in Cyprus. Notably at The State Gallery of Contemporary Cypriot Art, The Bank of Cyprus Cultural Centre Foundation, The Hellenic Bank Cultural Centre, The Limassol Municipal Gallery and the Archbishop Makarios III Foundation-Cultural Centre.
