Artist Bio


A Cleveland area artist and writer, Amy Lauria creates environmentally friendly art with items found on her walks along the beaches of Lake Erie, in Cleveland. She sees art everywhere outdoors.  Amy has always dragged acorns, pine cones, leaves, and flowers inside; loves bringing the peace found outdoors into living her living spaces.

In 2011, she began creating simple, nature inspired graphics with her overflowing collection of stones, beach glass, driftwood, metal, wire and plastic.  It's her personal mission to create timeless, elegant art from discarded, forgotten items; to make the world a happier, better place in some small way. 

Original Art

Original Art is made with stones, beach glass, driftwood, metal, plastic, and wire. All 'found objects' from Amy's beach walks are fair game. Original works are time consuming to create, like putting together a puzzle without the picture. No two are alike; findings are random in color, shape, size, and are rarely altered from how they are found--except to clean, sanitize, seal them. Original art is always housed in upcycled vintage/antique frames. Originals are individually priced.

Fine Art Prints

In 2015, Amy enlisted The Paul Duda Gallery to create prints of some of her more popular originals. Paul has long had a gallery in Tremont (downtown Cleveland) to showcase his collections of art and photographs. Simon is experienced in scanning original art, then creating fade resistant, Giclee fine art prints on high quality paper; he uses a large flatbed scanner to scan my original art, which makes the dimension, shapes and color in my original art closely resemble the originals. Prints are available in limited quantities and can be ordered in custom sizes; not all originals are available in prints.
