Life with Dogface features new works created in Cambodia and Seattle by local artist Lauren Iida, a Seattle-based cut paper artist and Cornish College of the Arts graduate (’14).
Iida teaches her paper cut-away techniques to homeless youth through Gage Academy of Art in partnership with Sanctuary Arts. Previously she has taught paper cutting at the Northwest African American Museum, Seattle Girls’ School through the Wing Luke Museum, and to adults in recovery through Path With Art at the Recovery cafe. In 2016 Iida will teach at the Bellevue Art Museum, Twispworks, Artxchange Gallery, and other locations in Seattle.
Much of Iida’s work is influenced by Cambodia where she lived for many years working on various non-profit and social entrepreneurship projects beginning in 2008. Most recently she spent a year teaching art and English in a remote rural area of the country.
