This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Indianapolis, Clara Dieman became a sculptor, modeler and art educator whose teaching assignments took her to many parts of the country. A specialty was collaborating with architects to coordinate sculpture with building design.  She was married to Niels Sorenson and to Charles Dieman.  She spent the last nine years of her life in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

In 1917, she graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago* where she studied with Lorado Taft and Charles Mulligan.  She then studied at Columbia University with Victor Brenner and with Ossip Zadkine in France.  Other teachers included Alexander Archipenko, William Forsyth and Amedee Ozenfant.

Moving around frequently when she began her career, she lived in Houston, Texas in the late 1920s and early 1930s; in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in the mid 1930s; and in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania for fifteen years where from 1934 to 1947 she taught at the Shipley School for Girls and served as Director of the Art Department.  Then she lived in New York City and taught at the School of Creative Arts and the University School of Handicraft.  She also spent time in Denver and Philadelphia.

In 1930, Dieman began visits to New Mexico, which included teaching at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque and making statuary for the stations of the cross for the University's St. Thomas Aquinas chapel.  In Santa Fe, where she died in 1959, Dieman taught at the Santa Fe Art School and the Santa Fe county schools.

Exhibition venues included the Society of Western Artists*, Art Institute of Chicago, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts*, National Academy of Design*, Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe, and the Annual Houston Artists Exhibition.

Clara Dieman was a member of the Chicago Society of Artists*, National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors* and the Philadelphia Print Club.
