Lauren Guymer

Lauren Guymer is an Australian visual artist who creates landscape paintings and drawings on paper.

Lauren currently lives and works on Bunurong / Boon Wurrung land in Victoria. From the bushland near her home to places further afield, Lauren takes inspiration from the natural world that surrounds her. Responding to her observations and memories, she creates detailed works on paper that explore her experiences and connections to the land. Her process involves walking, traveling, and sketching in nature, before returning to her studio and re-constructing these ideas in watercolour, ink, and pencil.

Born in 1992, Lauren formed some of her earliest memories and appreciation for nature while growing up on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. In 2014 she received a Bachelor of Design and has been a practicing visual artist since 2015. Primarily self-taught, her earlier years focused on monochromatic drawing and painting before moving into large immersive watercolour paintings.
