Salwa Majoka is an illustrator and visual development artist graduating from OCAD University in Toronto, Canada. Her work is focused in visual storytelling and she is motivated by the opportunity to communicate strong moods and messages through her work, concentrating on the use of colour and light to do so. Salwa’s treatment of images as story moments is pertinent to her passion for designing narratives in various stages of production and telling her own stories someday.
I am an Illustration student at RCAD, working towards becoming a children's book illustrator! I enjoying making illustrations that ignite a sense of joy and warmth. Illustrating for children’s books has settled well with me because often times when people are reflecting back on their childhoods, they speak fondly of the books that they grew up on, and I want to be able to create something that children growing up will be able to love and be nostalgic towards when they get older.
