Chapter 66-Kris of By Kris Keys

Truly hope you enjoy and are inspired by this week’s episode with Kris.

In this chapter, Kris recalls her grandmother’s social club chartering a bus to take trips to nearby cities, even if that meant selling plates of food to raise the money. Those trips through the years stoked her wanderlust and she tells us how she went from Tennessee to New York to London, and eventually creating international art installations and teaching workshops abroad. We talk about how Kris’ mother advocated for her health concerns, and Kris was eventually diagnosed with a blood disorder, hereditary elliptocytosis. That diagnosis would eventually converge with Kris’ ambitions as an art illustrator and fashion designer to create her current collection called Hematology. She also speaks on why supporting Black designers is empowering and how surrender has been a big part of her personal growth.

Kris would love for you to buy a beautiful, comfortable garment from her collection, and you can sign up for her newsletter while you’re on her website. You can also connect with her on Instagram.

Kris is inspired by the Serenity Prayer these days:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

Dr. Reinhold Niebuhr
