My name is Rozlyn
I am a Canadian artist
based in downtown Toronto with some studies in
design and illustration.
As an artist
I love to draw and I love to tattoo.
Creating art is such a magical thing, especially when it connects with others and becomes meaningful enough to choose to wear permanently.
I love to design and make clothing too,
showcasing my own art on items that I actually want to wear. For me, its about hands-on creating but also about comfort, with a mix of day-to-day apparel and fun one-of-a-kind finds.
I feel very lucky that I get to do what I do for a living!
From tattoos to apparel, to prints and original artwork, illustration projects or custom commissions,
I would love to work with you.
I'm always looking for new and exciting creative opportunities.
I am available by appointment only,
just send me an email if you would like to set something up.
About my style
I call it - Illustrative Unrealism.
I draw almost everything by hand with a ballpoint pen, on watercolour paper, with an occasional splash of paint or marker for colour.
I often use real life elements, combined or mashed up into something new or surreal. I also like to play with visual forms that push the standard reality or create optical illusions. I enjoy taking something familiar and making it unique mixing the real with a bit of the unreal.
Conceptually, my drawings are often meant to convey deeper meaning, provoke thought or express emotion. I like to explore themes such as life and death, love and growth, the beauty of nature, perspectives and the passage of time.
My tattoo style is meant to look like my drawings, on skin instead of paper. It's an illustrative approach that mixes bold black, fine line, soft tonal shading, and sometimes accent colour. I aim for tattoos that suit the body, heal well, and age well.
