For nearly 3 decades, Kristin Kest has been an illustrator and has created over 30 books, 15 years of calendars, numerous 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 science-fiction. She is fluent in 2-D and 3-D media. Kest's portfolio also 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 taught Illustration and Drawing at York College of PA for a number of years. In addition to her freelance art career, Kest also enjoys playing keyboards in a rock band.
