My arts practice investigates philosophy and psychology by drawing in the expanded field – I am interested in the processes behind thinking, observation, conceptual knowledge and how we respond to those things.

Lauren Saunders (b. 1990) is an award-winning visual artist-activist living and working in Hull. Inspired by ecological research and her own spiritual connection to the Earth, she explores questions surrounding environmental ethics within her highly experimental and philosophy-inspired drawing practice.

As well as being as a teacher, facilitator and consultant within both the arts and NHS mental health care, she also produces and coordinates community and participatory projects – such as the celebrated Hull-based arts journal and artist collective The Critical Fish.
