Dolores is a retired widow who has always been creative and started using clay as a form of therapy to strengthen her left hand. She now uses it for therapy for her vision and particularly eye-hand coordination which is due to macular degeneration. She is in love with all things in nature and has a degree in wildlife zoology. Her first attempt at a clay sculpture was coral reefs and her neighbor kept pushing her to expand her horizons, which she did and started to create thing other than coral reefs.
