For over 28 years, Kristin Kest has been an illustrator and has made over 30 books, 15 years of calendars, many magazines and publications~ including a 100-page graphic novel. Kest has additional experience in creating imagery for manufactured products such as wallpaper, greeting cards, labels, and more.
Kest's work spans markets as well as genres, and her work is as fluid in the educational and technical sciences, as it is in historical fiction or sci-fi. Kest's portfolio shows that she is specifically fascinated with the intersection between hard science and the Fantastic and the storytelling opportunities that exist in that space. Kest has her MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and had taught Illustration and Drawing at York College of PA for nearly a decade.
In addition to her freelance career, Kest is also an avid ceramist/ sculptor and enjoys playing in a rock band, The Weathercocks. Kest works in both traditional media ~brush & oil paint~ and digital media.
