Mosa sees her work as part of a canon of Black women artists, scholars, activists, and spiritual practitioners concerned with social justice, cultural reclamation, and freedom. Working through art, performance, and ritual practices, she investigates themes of Black memory, healing, and memorialization.

Mosa’s artwork has been shown in galleries across Canada, in the US, Grenada, and North Korea and has been featured in many publications. Mosa is a member of the DAWA Collective (Diasporic African Women Artists), currently coordinating an exhibition project marking the historical 1989 DAWA exhibition, Black Wimmin: When and Where We Enter, the first exhibition in Canadian history curated by, and featuring exclusively the work of, Black women artists.

In her arts education practice, Mosa endeavours to foster African cultural literacy, cultivate Black agency, and nurture Black self-love. She has delivered hundreds of projects and performances reaching thousands of learners.

Mosa has spoken on panels at many universities and art galleries. She has received numerous grants, and was one of the 100 Accomplished Black Canadian Women honourees in 2020. A graduate of OCA and the School of the Toronto Dance Theatre, she holds an MES from York University’s Faculty of Environmental Studies.
