Kahn originally began creating art as a therapeutic response to a difficult upbringing, rather than through a wish to build a career. At the urging of a friend, her work was first exhibited publicly in December 2005 as part of the Voices Within Surviving Through the Arts show mounted by the Saint Louis Artists" Guild. Since then her work has been exhibited publicly in over 300 showings.
She also undertakes commissions and other collaborative projects.
Entirely self-taught, her work blends elements of photography, digital painting and collage. Most of her work includes aspects of self-portraiture and incorporates likenesses of herself.
Her art frequently features juxtaposition of symbols. Representations of surgical instruments, human anatomy and mortality are common features, set against political symbols such as the Stars and Stripes and images from nature.
An interest in tarot led to the creation of the Silver Era Tarot deck, made up of original designs featuring Kahn and author Russell J. Moon, published by Schiffer Publishing in April 2010.
In October 2010 Kahn curated the Lowbrow Tarot Project, a collection of pieces loosely centered on the lowbrow art style, representing the 22 cards of the Major Arcana and a 23rd piece representing the back of the cards. The works were exhibited at Louisiana Luz de Jesus gallery, Los Angeles, California, and will be published as a coffee table book and a card deck. As well as Kahn herself, artists featured included Molly Crabapple, David Stoupakis, Chet Zar, Angie Mason, Daniel Martin Diaz and Chris Mars.
Her piece Rousing the Whirlwind was chosen by Les Bourgeois vineyard, Rocheport, Missouri, to appear on the label of its limited edition 2005 Syrah.
