About Us

Artstrata is an online gallery and resource for contemporary paintings, fine art prints and photography in styles from classic landscape to pure abstract, from expressive to minimalist. 

We focus on representing a small community of emerging and established creatives who work and live on the West Coast of Canada. Our personal relationships with each amazing artist and photographer is at the core of our gallery business. We respect and support their creative process. We partner together to select, publish and champion great art.

Artstrata is curated and managed by Lis Erling Bailly, who is an artist and photographer herself. She has a B.A. in Fine Art and has run a successful graphic design studio and art consultancy for over twenty years in Victoria B.C.

"The online art experience is the fastest growing segment of the art market – particularly for a new generation of art lovers. In a world saturated by images, it can be challenging to find authentic, high quality artwork. By introducing you to respected West Coast artists, I hope to inspire confidence about investing in artwork that is a pleasure to own now and over time. For seasoned and aspiring collectors alike, we strive to make buying art online simple, secure and fair. 

As an artist myself, I also appreciate the realities for creatives who are trying to navigate a changing art market. I am genuinely excited about the potential for artists to make their living on the internet. With Artstrata, I hope to put some of my skills as a professional designer and communicator to work for these talented people to broaden their audience so their fine work can be seen and enjoyed."   — Lis Erling Bailly
