Event at the French Embassy in Buenos Aires
Tuesday December 2nd 2014, the French Amabassador Jean-Michel Casa and Margarita Melo de Vaquer Asociación Marianne's president, hosted a cocktail at the French Embassy in recognition to outstanding women of the Argentinian Culture. Dolores Avendaño was among them.
In her motivational conferences addressed to business men and women, companies, universities and/or schools, Dolores refers to her experience as an ultra marathoner (ultra marathons are races that go beyond 42 km) and as an international illustrator.
When I was little, when a “coihue” (a tall tree that grows in the mountains) creaked in the wind, my mother would say it was a fairy opening her window… we didn’t need to push our imaginations much, those mountains, forests and lakes, are truly enchanted and enchanting. It was in this amazing place, that I used to spend hours contemplating the illustrations in Fairy Tales books, and think, “When I grow up, I want to illustrate children’s books”.
Dolores has an extensive portfolio of professional work, for companies and institutions around the world, covering illustrations for renowned publishers and motivational conferences with recognized result.
With worldwide travel, Dolores has participated in numerous international races, earning the top spot and mentions. From the Sahara to continental ices, experiences to be shared.
