My life has always revolved around the arts, I would be at home in the Renaissance era!
My history of sculpting in alabaster, painting, calligraphy, travels in Europe, years as a makeup artist in LA, and a long career as a maitre'd for Chef Wolfgang Puck, where the art of cuisine and customer service came into play...
All changed with the birth of my two sons.
My "nesting" phase brought my Grandmother's Singer out, and the traditional skills that she so lovingly taught me gave birth to Dolce Dreams. I created pieces for my boys that combined traditional workmanship with the highest quality fabrics, in modern European styles, that I couldn't find in stores. Gifts for friends started requests for orders...
I was introduced to Etsy back in 2007, and made my home here!
Currently I sell custom pieces to clientele all over the world...it is so exciting for me to know that Dolce Dreams has a quilt or lovey being snuggled by little angels in so many countries! The majority of my business is repeat business, people that return year after year for a special gift that has been made with that extra attention to detail and that extra bit of love. I take great pride in my customer service and love to "meet " and get to know my customers.
I hope you stay awhile, find a perfect gift, and become one of my regulars!
