My Dream Life in Art
as told by Nicholle Kobi
Nicholle Kobi is an illustrator based in Paris, France and can be found here, http://www.nikisgroove.com/
I found an amazing picture floating on the web and I had it on my blog. I showed a co-worker and she asked me if I owned the rights. I said no of course. I knew that I needed to site my source or give credit where credit is due but I did not know who the author was or where to find them.
I was scrolling on my Instagram, my favorite social media app and I saw someone post an amazing picture and because I stared at the picture all the time I knew that artist by her technique! I had found the artist and I was so excited. I had to tell my co-worker and I showed her the pictures and she agreed that her pictures were phenomenal.
So when I found her other photos on Instagram and her website listed below, I was like she is drawing my dream life 🙂 I am like that is me, bougie black woman, oh there is me with my future child, oh look when I traveled to Paris….
Her illustrations show what I mean to be Bougie and Black and I definitely do not mean that in a negative way. We can talk about that more in another post!
Take a look, but know that this post might be a little crazy but a girl can dream right!!!!

A girl can dream right… But working hard to make my dreams become reality!
This artist is so dope isn’t she. I really wish I knew how to draw, paint etc. But I will just write for now! You need to go show your love and support to this amazing woman!
She has an Etsy shop called Nikis Groove and above you can click to follow her on Instagram! In my new place, I want to have a collage of her prints on my wall. Her paintings make me so happy.
