Earthy Imaginations by Erin Dobell

Greetings! My name is Erin Dobell and I am an artist, pastry chef, and nature lover nestled in the Finger Lakes of upstate New York. My entire life I have been known as a very creative person and could always be found baking, drawing, painting, working with beads, or making my own clothes. While attending high school, I took every kind of art class that would fit into my schedule. A favorite was ceramics, where one of my works was chosen to be featured at the Morris Museum known for celebrating art, science, history and performing arts in Morristown New Jersey. My dream was to be either a ceramics teacher or a fashion designer, or so I had thought.
After studying pastry arts at the Pennsylvania Culinary Institute, I was a baker & cake decorater for the following decade. During my baking career I always continued my artistic endeavors and was a participant at craft shows & festivals, often sharing a booth with my mother from whom I inherited my creative flair.
My mind is constantly rampant with ideas for new projects and "creating" marinates my soul in happiness. I enjoy sewing, painting & candle making to name a few, but especially LOVE working with beads. Over the years my driftwood beaded sun catchers have become my signature creation. I love everything about making them from searching the local lakeshore for driftwood, to stringing the glass and crystal beads, to adding gemstones and other natural details, to finally making sure they are balanced just right. I connect with each piece in a way I cannot describe; it brings me joy to create them and know that they will bring color, light and joy to others as well.
A year ago I embarked on a new adventure to open a gift shop called Earthy Imaginations, taking the love of my hobby to the next level.
