The Khoollect Squad Series: Lakwena

***Rachel Khoo would like to thank all the inspiring people who helped make the Khoollect studio a hive of creativity. Although the Khoollect studio’s doors have now closed, you can keep up with Rachel’s newest adventures on and on Rachel’s Instagram and Facebook pages – and, continue to enjoy the Khoollect website’s stories and recipes, which will remain available.***

The Khoollect Squad Series is a chance for us to introduce our community to our most-loved digital stars — the bloggers, Snapchatters and Instagrammers  — who are setting the pace on and offline. This squad is online, on point and, now, on your radar too. We think you’ll love the worlds of #thekhoollectsquad as much as we do.

This week we’d like to introduce you to London-based artist Lakwena, a woman whose use of kaleidoscopic colours, bold patterns and joyful graphics have us making emoji-style heart eyes. See what makes Lakwena tick, then check out her happy-making work online …
