KIKI BRYANT

THE  AUTHOR, ILLUSTRATOR, AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF LOLA’S UNIVERSE

Kiki is an author, illustrator, and designer located in Chicago, IL. As a little girl, Kiki used books as an escape from the realities of a difficult home life. Now she writes the stories she wish she had growing up. 

As an LBGT+ Black woman raising a little Black girl, Kiki wanted there to be at least one character where her daughter could see herself represented. Thus, Lola was born.
