"Dolores Valenza works in a variety of media.  Her paintings include stunning still-lifes, inspirational Madonnas, and the natural world.   Her jewelry glows in gold and silver, capturing life, hope, and heart in shimmering elegance. Her sculpture pulls in the soul, delights the eye, and tantalizes the will to touch". Molly McManus

I have been greatly influenced by the works of the Old Masters.  Be it painting, sculpture or jewelry, my approach to each subject is the same. I draw on the past while keeping my eye on the future and my fingerprint on each work. This inspiration continues to exert itself upon me, whether my art is representational or seemingly abstract.

Of late, I have been inspired by the Renaissance period. My current focus is working with gouache,  water color and dry pigment on raw canvas, to create what I call "Painted Tapestries." A new technique for me. I love the intense colors and results which may be achieved with this method. Jewelry, as well as Bronze's, are cast in the lost wax method.

Sculptures commissioned from various porcelain companies have been exhibited worldwide.  Works have been presented to such dignitaries as Pope John Paul 11, Former First Lady Betty Ford, Queen Elizabeth, Countess Catherine Bobrinsky, and Former Prime Minister Golda Meir.

I enjoy what I do and I am grateful for the gifts with which I was born.
