Kimberly 'Kiyo' Jolanda


Hello, and welcome; it's a pleasure to meet you. My name is Kimberly Jolanda, and I am an author, visual poet and artist from The Netherlands.

Combining my passions for both art and the written word, I began sharing my Visual Poetry online under my creative nickname Kiyo, and have published a handful of books like the fully illustrated Dreamscape, featuring my artwork and poems; the first Micro Poetry collection, Musings from a Wildflower, and more recently, Amaranthine, which hold all my haiku poems till date.

In the fall of 2019 I switched to using my full name due to the desire to focus more on writing stories like my free eBook, Echoes from Another Time, and am presently thrilled to be working on a compilation of various magically touched tales slated for an expected 2020 release.
