Kristen Kantounatakis, MA, AT:  

I am naturally drawn to creating art to keep myself relatively calibrated through the inevitable peaks and valleys. Personally, it is my most effective outlet.


I am an art therapist with a vicious case of wanderlust.  There is nowhere on this earth I would encounter that could not make me a better, more well-rounded person.  I feel it is through experiencing other people's way of life, culture and perspective that enables you to learn who you truly are.

What drives you?  What are your desires?  What could you exfoliate from your life?

Discovering my own uncharted territories drives me forward.  What I can learn and who I can meet.  Our world is infinite, and it is my wish to share with you my experiences and to hopefully inspire you to discover your own uncharted territories. 

I graduated from the University of Cincinnati, majoring in Art History with a focus on Fine Arts and minors in Asian Art History and Women’s Studies. I have earned two Master’s degrees from Ursuline College in Art Therapy and Counseling. I owned an art gallery, The O Gallery, in Beachwood, OH while pursuing my graduate degrees. I enjoy exploring mediums, so please take a look at the galleries of my work below. Thank you for your time and interest!
