Dintiman’s work is characterized by a deep connection to nature. Whether she is working directly with objects found in nature or taking nature as her subject, Dintiman strives to capture the intimate, emotional quality of certain natural settings, suffused as they are with time, change, and memory.

Dintiman has taught at California College of the Art as well as other CA colleges;  she is on the faculty at the Manhattan Graphics Center. Dintiman has received fellowships from the Yaddo Corporation, Dorland’s Mountain Colony, and Cooper Union. Her work—including sculptures, prints, drawings, and collages—has been exhibited in museums throughout the country, including the Philadelphia Art Museum, the National Museum for Women in the Arts, the Chrysler Museum, ICPNY and Christy’s.
