About me

My name is Lauren Metzler and I am an Illustrator + Designer based in Sydney, Australia.

Originally from Oregon, I spent my childhood hiking the forests and waterfalls of the Pacific Northwest. Early in life, I was introduced to the World of Faerie and other magical woodland creatures, while also being encouraged to explore my natural surroundings. This developed a strong fascination in the hidden wonders of the forest that remains playing a reoccurring role in my illustrative work.

I am inspired by everything! Travel, art, zines, Japan, Kawaii, forest critters, tea parties, yummy treats, love, old film cameras, unicorns, sprinkles, cocoa, tea and baby bunnies!
