Lauren Guymer is an Australian visual artist who primarily creates drawings and paintings inspired by the natural world.
With her distinctive monochromatic style and use of detailed mark making and self-taught techniques, Lauren explores the mystery and beauty of nature. Her ideas are inspired by both the real and imagined, with dream-like places, atmospheric landscapes, and uninhabited sanctuaries emerging from a world of her own. Her process also includes observing, traveling, and collecting inspiration from places, resulting in works that respond to the landscape and her experiences.
With a growing focus on the environment and it’s protection, she is currently interested in the complex Australian landscape, including near her home on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. Here she works from her home studio surrounded by inspiring scenery, animals, and native bushland.
