Kristi Diane Williams-Finding Peace & Tranquility
Kristi Diane Williams is the creator of KristiKollectionsLLC. Her mission is to make sure that every child feels like they have a Purpose and Valued! KristiKollectionsLLC, is a mental wellness brand that specializes in creating products that promote emotional and mental well-being. She is creating branded everyday products for Children, Teens & Adults that will make them feel Unique and Loved. They are available online at “Bed Bath & Beyond”! I obtained my Associate’s Degree in Science Technology from the University of Cincinnati in 1993, my Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts from Xavier University in 2000, and my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Cincinnati in 2007. I later received my LSW in 2008. At the age of 42, my soul started searching for "Peace" and "Tranquility". My life up until that point had been anything but. I was sexually abused by a family member at a young age, became fatherless at the age of 12 due to my father leaving my mother and refusing to care for us, had two children before graduating from high school and a total of four children by the time I was 25. As a young single mother of four, I struggled to provide for my children and relied on public assistance. “Peace” and “Tranquility” were definitely not a part of my world. Like I stated above, I was desperately in search of “Peace” and “Tranquility," even though I had no idea what they would look like in my life filled with strife and turmoil. But I began to search and started looking to the sky. That is where I found the “Peace” and “Tranquility” I was searching for. I created artistic photos from the sky and used them to create a “Healing Journal”. My pictures began to open new doors, a new way of thinking and seeing the world around me. They helped me to believe in a higher being and see a higher purpose for my life. KristiKollectionsLLC was created from my heart’s healing to promote mental wellness! A brand that specializes in creating products that engage emotional and mental well-being. My mission is to make sure that every child feels like they have a Purpose and Valued-Changing The Perspective! ​Accomplishments: Kristi’s breathtaking photos have been featured in 2016 HOMEARAMA® luxury home show in the Artisan custom builder home. Her work is also displayed in the green room at the Funny Bone Comedy Club in Liberty Township, Ohio and was featured at the Arthouse Art Show “The Art of Structure.” Kristi received the Award of Excellence from the Manhattan Arts International Exhibition, “The Healing Power of Art 2016.” My mantra: Everyone has a Story! Everyone has a Journey! Everyone has a Purpose!
