This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Lovingly referred to as the "Grandma Moses of the Pennsylvania Dutch country," Dolores has painted the colorful Amish folk and culture for the past forty plus years.  Her distinctive folk art style vividly depicts the simple and charming traditions of the Amish neighbors, with whom she has worked and visited throughout her life in southeastern Pennsylvania, graced by wooden frames lovingly made by her son.
Self-taught, Dolores began receiving recognition early, winning in the Chicago National Art Show near the beginning of her career.  Since that time, she has earned international acclaim.  Her paintings have won numerous top awards in juried competitions judged by authorities such as Eric Sloan, John McCoy and Warren Rohrer. 

Exhibitions of her work have been conducted in many institutions throughout the nation including, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Reading Public Museum, the Chicago National Art show, Franklin & Marshall College, and Lebanon Valley College.  Her paintings are also in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and other areas throughout the world.
Most recently, her paintings have been viewed in the Colonial Homes magazine, and Better Homes & Gardens' Country Home.  She is honored to be one of the chosen artists in the limited-edition history book, Artist' Album/Lancaster County.
Her work has been collected by such prominent figures as President George Bush, the later Senator John Heinz, Congressman Robert Walker, Celeste Homes, Rod Stewart, Paul Newman, Oliver North and many other private collections.
"I paint seven days a week, anywhere from two to ten hours a day.  I don't know how good my work is, but people like the paintings, and they've always sold.  I'm constantly amazed.  I've never gotten over the thrill of people wanting to own my work."
Dolores has won or received awards in 20 of 25 competitive shows which she entered from 1960 onwards. 

She loves antiques, which her paintings reflect.
