This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A pastel artist of expansive western landscapes, especially those near her hometown of Taos, New Mexico, Dinah Worman has become a comfortable, established artist, but the 'journey' has been challenging.

She spent her early childhood in Midland, Texas and at age four, was nearly killed by an automobile.  Because of a head injury, she spent much time in bed, and her father built a desk over the bed that she used for art expression that as she says, "became her partner".  Eventually this pastime became a serious pursuit.

In Durango, Colorado, where her family had moved she took art classes and then attending Colorado State University, majored in art.  She married Dave Worman, a commercial pilot, and the couple lived in Italy several years before settling in Sheridan, Wyoming where they had two girls.  There she met William Wright, an artist who was half Crow Indian, and he taught her about using pastels, which, in turn, became her primary medium.  They did a lot of plein-air painting together.

The family relocated to Denver, and her husband, who had been highly supportive of her artwork, died in 1987.  She then moved to Taos, New Mexico where she was attracted to the art focus of that area.

Biography from Ann Korologos Gallery:
Dinah’s landscape paintings are instantly recognizable for their clarity and depth. Light is everywhere. It filters through the trees and streams, between the clouds. She is able to retain this vitality because she is continually renewing her vision. “I work to press beyond method and into a flow of creative instinct; using pastel, oil, acrylic or printmaking to express myself with unusual compositions and expanding vision.”

Dinah’s work ranges from representational to imaginative variations taken from a creative viewpoint of man and his relationship to the landscape.

Dinah has earned the designation of Master Pastellist from the Pastel Society of America. She has been featured in articles in several newspapers, magazines including: Southwest Art, The Pastel Journal and The Artists Magazine as well as having a public installation chosen for display in Taos, NM. She is also featured in several books including Art Journey America: Landscapes.

Harwood Museum in Taos, NM acquired a painting in 2011.
