Nicholle Kobi Of Niki's Groove

This week's Highlight Entrepreneur is French illustrator Nicholle Kobi of Niki's Groove. Nicholle is originally from Kinshasa, Congo and currently resides in Paris, France. I discovered her work on Instagram and instantaly fell in love with her illustrations. Her work is impeccable to say the least. It really goes much deeper than just pretty and fashionable illustrations. Nicholle's art shows the beauty and diversity of women of colour (WOC)'s natural hair. Through her images, she expresses and promotes power. We can be our natural selves and not have to conform to what society tries to depict us as. I applaud her for conveing that. We definitely need more diversity for WOC, and the more we promote the ones that are already doing great things, it will soon become the norm.

Below are just a few of my favourite illustrations she has done :)
