Lola x Kenneth

“Hello! My name is Kenneth and my grandmother (“lola” in Tagalog) is Crescenciana. I moved back home to San Jose in 2014 to help care for Lola, and we started working together. Lola makes watercolor paintings, and I add drawings based on her stories and memories. Together we’re The Lola x Kenneth Collaboration.

Shop our prints, pins, and t-shirts, designed by us—your neighbors in San Jose. My grandmother makes the paintings. I promise to finish everything she starts.” -Kenneth Ronquillo, owner of The Lola x Kenneth Collaboration
