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 galleries from San Francisco to Los Angeles, and in a variety of publications. She has worked with clients such as Chronicle Books, Random House, Scholastic, HarperCollins, Perseus, Lufthansa Airlines, Mattel and The Village Voice among others. Her illustrations have been recognized by Society of Illustrators, Creative Quarterly 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 San Francisco happily with her husband, where they continually water their plants too much.
