Kest has additional experience in creating imagery for manufactured products such as wallpaper, greeting cards, labels, and more.

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.
