Curriculum Vitae


Lauren McCleary

Lauren is a teaching artist living in Moscow, Idaho. She is interested in patterns, cycles, symbiotic relationships, and both visual and conceptual balance.

Her cut paper process allows her to translate observations, a way of mending and meditating on matters at hand, allowing her to hold strict concentration and playfulness in the same hand. Paper is her footpath — it keeps her wondering, fascinated, surprised, and searching for all the possibilities such a simple material holds.

She holds a BFA and K-12 Art Education degree from Metropolitan State University of Denver, and an MFA from Washington State University. She has lived on the Palouse since 2007 and is now the Clinical Assistant Professor of Art Education at the University of Idaho.
