Hello! I'm Roza. I AM AN ILLUSTRATOR AND VISUAL ARTIST, BASED IN TKARONTO/TORONTO.

On social media, I am known as YallaRoza. Much of my art is rooted in my own identities and the communities I belong to --as a queer, muslim cis-woman of colour. I use art to tell stories of trauma and healing, of oppression and injustice, and of resistance and collective care. My art centres the stories of those often erased from our archives of mental health and wellness —in particular, the often erased stories of queer, trans and two-spirit people; of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person(s) of Colour); of Muslims; of femmes and non-binary folks; and of many more. I hope that, through art, I can illuminate the tremendous, intergenerational wisdom that lives in 2SLGBTQ+ communities of colour about trauma, healing and community.
