She has studied at the University of the Arts, the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts and Fleisher Art Memorial, and has been a graphic designer for many years. Recently, she won the 2011 New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowship for painting.

Dolores writes, "Relationships (I always say) are never easy: the relationship in a composition of the part to the part, the part to the whole and the relationship
of the piece to the viewer."

"With this in mind, I use titles to emotionalize these abstract pieces to help communicate a connection between the individual and the universal whole. This holds true no matter what medium I use. In creating the metal pieces I use recycled aluminum printing press plates which I sand, cut and glue onto wood panels. They are about energy and light, patterns
and motion, the microcosm of life forms, and occassional satire."

Dolores Dolores will be showing her work in a group show of New Jersey State Council on the Arts 2011 Fellowship artists this June at the Noyes Museum of Art.
