Tassila Elizabeth Artist

Artist Info

About Tassila

Tassila’s artistic impulse is to reflect on the palette and connectivity of colours, the mood, and lighting before she chooses a topic to paint. This unusual development means she sometimes will select an actual image as a subject, while other times preferring an abstract direction. Her paintings are generally inspired by nature; the forests, mountains, grasslands, and oceans, they are not just scenery but the wellspring of her art, and the constant tumultuous beauty of her surroundings guides her life as a working artist in British Columbia.

Her main composition is contemporary, focusing on nature, with a play of the abstract. She primarily paints with acrylic and some mixed media.

All canvases are professionally crafted locally and can be custom sized. She welcomes commissioned work, and has experience working with interior designers, architects, builders, and real estate agents.

Contact Tassila for more information or look at her works at various businesses, galleries, and restaurants in the Okanagan and Whistler, BC.

Working with Designers, Architects, Builders, and Real Estate Agents

Since I started working as an artist in Whistler, BC in 2007  I have formed successful partnerships with designers, architects, builders, and real estate agents consulting with them to provide artwork for projects and clients, within budget and on time.  I am experienced at becoming a valuable and seamless part of your design team.

Working with clients

Whether you are moving into a new residence, office, starting a new business  or wishing to update the look of your current premises, I am sure that I can help you to find the perfect artwork to enhance your home or commercial space. Whether it is the signature piece for an entrance way or dining room, a focal point for a lobby or numerous pieces for a hotel or office building, I can help you select from my current available pieces of art or work with you and / or your designer to commission custom pieces.  I also welcome local business that would like to display my art or rentals for longer terms.

Payment Options

Direct payment within Canada payment can be made by cash, cheque, paypal, e-transfer.

Art sold and shipped to the United States or Internationally can be paid for by e-transfer or bank draft.

For art displayed in any Gallery payment is by whatever methods accepted by them.

Original Art

All sales are final.  I am not able to accept returns of original paintings.  If you are unsure of the size or colours of an artwork and want to be able to visualize it in your space, please contact me for assistance.  I will do my best to create a visual mock-up of the painting in your room so you can purchase with confidence.  If you live in the the Okanagan area, a viewing of original art in your home can be arranged upon request. Fees are associated with this service if it is more than a half hours distance from my studio.  Please feel free to contact me for details.


Shipping Methods

Artwork can be shipped via wooden crate, which can be costed out or the canvas can be taken off the frame and sent in a tube package.  If the latter is chosen the customer will have to have a new frame made and the canvas stretched, some art work may be lost in the stretching process.  Shipping costs for both methods can be calculated prior to the ship date, the buyer is responsible for all shipping and packaging costs.


In Canada paintings are shipped via Canada Post with shipping costs calculated at checkout. Shipping must be paid in full at the time of purchase.  All prices are in Canadian dollars.  Please contact me for shipping quotes to international destinations and for all larger products.

Free local pickup and delivery is available for customers in the Okanagan areas.  Select “free local pickup” at checkout and contact me to arrange a pick-up time.  Please contact me for dates when I can deliver to Whistler.

Tracking & Shipping Times

You will be provided with a tracking number for your shipment.  Shipping times are always an estimate.

Please allow 2 weeks processing time (prior to shipping) for all print sales. All sales are final. Prints are carefully produced by a trusted local printer upon purchase.  As your print is being made to order specifically for you, please understand that we cannot accept returns for prints and reproductions.

Local Exchange

Original art can be exchanged in-person within a period of 3 days from the date of purchase.  To qualify for exchange, paintings must be returned in-person (not shipped) and in perfect condition.  The purchase price can be credited towards an alternate artwork.  This is an exchange-only policy.
