Claudia Diller

A professional graphic designer/illustrator, Diller has been enthralled by Maine’s mountains, farms, and the fishing communities on the coast and the islands ever since she summered in Skowhegan as a teenager over 60 years ago.


Essentially self-taught, her work is simply a diary of the way she sees Maine and an attempt to preserve those places she finds unique and dear, but nearly impossible to depict. Other times, her sketches are just mental meanderings and musings while thinking about her two beautiful children and three grandchildren, weeding her gardens, hiking the mountains, skiing or sailing off the coast. 

Diller has lived in Maine for over 50 years and currently resides in Kingfield, Maine where she writes and paints a weekly blog and paints her annual art calendar and note cards. She has written and illustrated one book and illustrated four others.

Her work can be viewed and purchased at, and on Facebook at Claudia Diller Art.
