Eda Kaban was born and raised in Turkey with a great passion for drawing, reading, and monkey bars. She has traveled the globe wearing a backpack slightly larger than herself. Her travels brought her to the States where she studied illustration.
Her work can be seen in print and galleries from San Francisco to New York, and in a variety of publications. She has worked with clients such as Penguin, Random House, Simon & Schuster, Scholastic, HarperCollins, Chronicle Books, Macmillan, Perseus, Lufthansa Airlines, Mattel, Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe and The Village Voice among others. Her illustrations have been recognized by Society of Illustrators, Creative Quarterly, American Illustration and 3X3. She is represented by Shannon Associates and she continues to search for stories through love, laughter, and observations of the people around her.
When she is not drawing, you can find her climbing some rocks, or biking the hills of the Bay Area. She currently resides in Oakland happily with her husband, and their two rambunctious cats, where they continually water their plants too much.
