Elizabeth Kane, known as EKvisualartist on Instagram and Twitter, is a visual artist whose practice combines drawing, photography and digital tools. She is also the founding member of South Tyneside Creatives. Based in South Tyneside much of her work is participatory, focusing on engaging less frequent arts audiences, children and young people. 

Her work is often connected to physical & mental ‘self-space’. She is interested in the current focus of many arts funders on ‘place-based’ approaches and exploring the heritage, culture and nature of areas and people’s relationship to and with them.

Feedback from commissioners and participants reflects Elizabeth’s commitment to high quality co-creation and excellent experiences building confidence in others creativity.

“Elizabeth was super – inspiring confidence in us all – even me! She was so friendly and there was plenty of laughter too.” Anne, Gateshead Art Diamonds Participant.


Elizabeth has worked as an artist with a wide range of commissioners and organisations including Gateshead Arts Team, Sunderland Culture, Washington Arts Centre, South Tyneside Libraries, Durham Libraries, Blue Cabin and more. For more information see selected exhibitions and projects.

She also has experience in Learning and Producing roles for Helix Arts, The Customs House Learning and Participation Team, The Shipley Art Gallery and Laing Art Gallery (Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums), and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art. To read more please see her CV here.
