Artfully recycled-Laura Sponagle

Laurie Sponagle is the artist behind Artfully Recycled. Helping you create beautiful and happy spaces in your home and garden with eco-conscious décor products.

Known in Eastern Ontario and Toronto since 1999 for her lush charcoal drawings, Mallorytown artist Laurie was taking an “art break” when inspiration literally re-blossomed! Well…a wee bit of inspo was Mother Nature…while working in her gardens! Laurie began constructing objects from the home reno leftovers. Whoa! Definitely NOT charcoal….Colour, sculptural and multimedia!

The innovative designs are eclectic combinations of the repurposed, salvaged and natural materials (consumer and industrial). All products are handmade in small batches and due to imperfections in materials, each are one of a kind. Wall products come ready to hang. Paints are outdoor grade.

Materials are all locally sourced or gathered – from friends, clients, local businesses, Treasure Day tours, or side of the road!
