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.
