Born in Southern Colorado in the little town of Jaroso, Dolores lives in Amalia at the very northern part of Taos County. Of Hispanic descent, she loves to sew and hopes that someday she can make a living with her artistic line of clothing.
Dolores’ line of clothing are made from her own patterns of southwestern designs and include coats made of Indian blankets, broomstick skirts (cotton and velvet), vests made from blankets and kilim rugs. She also designs and sews draperies and curtains. While living in Denver in the 1970, Dolores worked at a Drapery manufacturing company where she learned all the aspects of drapery making.
“When the letter came in congratulating me on being selected as an Open Studio participant, I was impressed. My hopes are that I can do some marketing and sales of my designs.”
