|August © Lisa Diller|
Bio: Originally from Collingswood, New Jersey, Brooklyn artist Lisa Diller took a BS in Vis Comm at the University of Delaware and went on to a successful career in advertising, becoming an Executive Creative Director at one of New York City’s premiere ad agencies.
In the late 1990s she returned to fine art; she explored pastel while traveling in the country with her husband, landscape artist Jim Maio, and found it suited her because of its flexibility, speed and colour saturation. The artist, who taught herself to use the medium, later studied with Wolf Kahn.
She first entered the Pastel Society of America’s Juried show in 1997, and was inducted as a member two years later. She was named a Master Pastellist in 2010 after winning numerous awards.
Lisa has been represented by galleries in New York City, Bridgehampton, Brooklyn, Charlotte, Stone Harbor and Englewood, New Jersey. Her work has been seen at the New York Armory and in numerous group and solo shows. She is a member of the Board of Directors at The Harlem School of the Arts.
