EDNA CABCABIN MORAN

Edna Cabcabin Moran is a multi-disciplined Bay Area artist and writer with an eclectic approach. Growing up Filipino-American and living both on the east and west coasts, in Iceland and in Hawai'i, Edna naturally gravitates toward a multicultural perspective in her stories and art. After receiving a BA in Studio Art at UH Manoa, Edna worked as a graphic artist for a screen printing company, a small publishing house and several publications. Her award-winning art has appeared in ads, t-shirts, magazines, CD albums and books. Her book titles include "The Sleeping Giant: A Tale From Kauai," "Can You Catch A Coqui Frog?" and contributing poetry in “Eyeball In My Garden And Other Spine-Tingling Poems.” She has a painterly visual style which she blends with digital media. A longtime dancer, Edna has studied Hawaiian hula since her teens and is a performing member of the critically-acclaimed company and Halau Hula, Na Lei Hulu I Ka Wekiu. At the heart of Edna's focus is the art of "story" which she believes has the power to elevate all art. Edna's dedication extends into teaching-mainly with children and families. For over twenty years, Edna has taught in the private and public sectors where she's had the privilege of seeing students discover and embrace "art for art's sake." Her workshops center on the exploration of visual art, stories from Pacific Island cultures, and individual expression.
