Lauren Guymer is a Melbourne based visual artist who creates intricate black and white artworks inspired by the natural world.
With a primary focus on drawing and painting, Lauren meticulously constructs dream-like worlds of her own using highly detailed mark making and self-taught techniques. Driven by her constant fascination with nature, her process includes observing, travelling, and collecting inspiration, resulting in works that respond to her experiences, memories, and the environment. Combining this with her vivid imagination and curiosity in surrealism, dreams, and symbolism, her works explore further into imaginary places filled with atmospheric landscapes and uninhabited sanctuaries.
Lauren currently resides on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia. She works from her home studio which is surrounded by inspiring scenery, animals, and native flora & fauna.
