Goals: To focus the viewer’s attention on elements of beauty in the natural world, and in the process gain an appreciation and desire to preserve our environment. To share with viewers a fleeting reflection in a pond, a certain play of light across a mountain ridge, or a delicate feature of a flower.
Some Personal Info: The discovery and treatment of a tumor in Dinsmore's thigh muscle in 1991, left her requiring the use of a cane. Despite the handicap, Dinsmore continues to explore the mountains whenever time permits. A former downhill ski competitor, Dinsmore continues to do short hikes, a few turns on a ski hill, and when the powder is just right, a short back country ski in the White Mountains.
From 1980-2007, Sally Dinsmore owned and operated Gold Leaf Frame & Gallery, a custom picture frame shop and art gallery in North Conway, NH. Currently Dinsmore works out of her home in Shelburne as a painter, graphic artist, and a digital photo restorer of old pictures.
