Artist of the Month: Erica Robinson

Hedonism is about all sensory pleasure and at the beginning of each month, our Chocolate and Ice Cream shops appeal to not only our senses of smell and taste, but also to that of sight through the work of local artists.

For the month of August, we have the great pleasure to feature the work of Erica Robinson of Hoop Dreams Art.

Growing up, Erica was the quiet one in her family and enjoyed crafting. She used whatever she could find – wood, clay, paper, thread. Now, she continues to take advantage of every opportunity to try her hand in writing, pottery, paper-making, sewing and painting. But she still prefers embroidery hoop art above all.

Erica learned how to make hoop art by learning to stitch and make dream catchers. “Not much of what I’ve created was learned, but is more felt,” she recalls. “If I see something that inspires me, I attempt it in my own way.”

She first gave her dream catchers and hoop art to her family and friends as a sign of love. She wanted to give something handmade, heartfelt and custom, or craft, as we say here at Hedonist and the South Wedge. Erica received such positive feedback from friends and family that she soon turned her peaceful hobby into an at-home business.

Erica’s exhibit in our Ice Cream shop will officially open on Aug. 7 from 6-9 p.m. for First Friday. It will remain available for viewing throughout August. rf
