“My goals are to touch black woman around the world. Maybe I’m a big dreamer but, I want to capture every black beauty with my pen. I hope to make them feel more beautiful or just to see how beautiful they already are.”  -Niki Kobi

 
Raised in Normandy; a small city in France but originally from the largest city in the democratic republic of the Congo; Kinshasa, Niki Kobi left her 9-5 corporate position to turn a passion of illustrating into a full fledged career, creating ‘Niki’s Groove’, a  tumblr that reads almost like an online portfolio. Featuring an array of beautifully designed illustrations, specifically highlighting women of color, here is a closer look at ‘Niki’s Groove’.
