Tasli Shaw is a marine naturalist and painter working on Vancouver Island, Canada.
She has spent countless hours observing the marine mammals of the Salish Sea and uses these observations in the studio to convey their individual personalities and conservation issues, while weaving together visual stories old and new with scientific knowledge. Tasli currently splits her time between the studio, whale watching, and contributing to marine mammal photographic identification projects.
