Profile

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.

Within the past year, Kest has completed work with the US National Park Service, another calendar with Yankee Publishing Co. (Old Farmer's Almanac), several educational projects with Tighe and Pearson Publishing groups, a project with a pharmaceutical company (under NDA), and a book with a self-publishing author. She is currently creating a whole new body of work for two shows at IKON Gallery this fall. Kest has her MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and had taught Illustration and Drawing at York College of PA for a number of years.
