Lauren Saunders

Lauren Saunders (b. 1990) is an award-winning visual artist and activist living and working in Hull.

Creatively, she explores pressing existential questions surrounding the relationships between the human and non-human within her highly experimental and philosophy-inspired drawing practice. Environmental philosophies and ethics, cutting-edge scientific research, Traditional Ecological Knowledge and her own direct, earth-rooted experiences inspires and influences her work.

She is also an experienced teacher, community artist and project manager, facilitating a number of community and participatory projects alongside co-directing the celebrated Hull-based arts journal and artist collective The Critical Fish. She works critically through a lens of being a working-class woman managing a mental health disability.
