Elizabeth Mikellides is a British Greek-Cypriot artist based in Surrey and creates art inspired by music.
Interests in music and art have always been important to Elizabeth and at one stage, she had seriously considered becoming a professional pianist. Choosing visual art in the end, Elizabeth studied a BA (Hons) in Drawing at Camberwell College of Art and then an MA in Fine Art Media at The Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, London.
At Camberwell, Elizabeth found a way to combine her love for both art forms whilst investigating what the practice of contemporary Drawing really was.
Upon completing her studies, Elizabeth moved abroad to Brussels, Belgium and took up English teaching. Artmaking slowed to accommodate teaching work, which also offered great flexibility for when Elizabeth started her own family. Teaching art and piano lessons privately in Belgium, including running several art camps, for a period of 14 years, rekindled her desire to dedicate more time to creating art in a professional capacity.
A return to the UK in the summer of 2019 made it easier for Elizabeth to pick up where she left off and has since collaborated with musicians abroad and in the UK, interpreting their scores both visually and acoustically.
