About Kiyo

Kiyo is the name of artist and writer Kimberly Jolanda, born in 1986, who was raised and still lives in Leiden, a university city in The Netherlands.
After some enjoyable years working for a local graphic design studio, followed up with her portfolio represented by a London agency, Kim turned freelance as a digital artist, working in photo-manipulation, illustration and motion graphics. Though a storyteller at heart, throughout the years she could always be found writing down bits of poetry and ideas for (short) stories in free moments. As of early 2017 she made the decision to join both her interests under the name Kiyo, to work both for others, and create her own publications.

• Freelance Services
As a freelance artist, Kim creates custom-made bookcovers for eBook, paperback or hardcover novels, offers a range of pre-made eBook covers with customizable typography, and can also assist you with animated trailers for that extra bit of promotion. She often works for fellow writers, like her sister, Dutch author Lynn Robin. For an overview of her work, feel free to visit her Portfolio.

• Personal Publications

When she is not working for others, Kim publishes her own publications like her illustrated poetry book, Dreamscape, the first Micro Poetry collection Musings from a Wildflower, and shares online her three Visual Poetry series; pieces that combine words with imagery, and Poetic Prose; a collection that holds micro fiction and short stories, such as the available free eBook story, Echoes from Another Time.

Dreamscape; an illustrated journey in art and poetry

"To me, Dreamscape, is a beautiful book. It may be small in size, but the poetry inside combined with the imagery have lead me personally to muse and ponder as hours pass by my window. Like all great art it has asked me as many questions as it has answered and I also feel that as I age and change the book will reveal new meanings. Therefore it is a book for life, a gracefully written, delicate book and if you like to be inspired, to ponder and think, it's perfect."
— Dean Tarrant


“Dreams, they are wishes swimming into your mind in the middle of the night.”

Filled with 26 works of original art, Dreamscape invites you to escape into another world. Executed in an all-blue colour scheme the imagery blends the thin line between fiction and reality, and is accompanied by a rich variety of poetry, ranging from haiku to free-form pieces.
