A native of Steubenville, Ohio, Claudine Scott, was one of four children. In 1877, Claudine enrolled in the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where she met Benjamin Ferris Gilman (1856–1934). In 1878, the two young artists married and subsequently traveled to Paris for study.

Barred from studying at the École, Claudine Gilman enrolled at the Académie Julian where women paid double for enrollment and received half the critique time male students could expect. Probably seeking better instruction, Claudine entered the atelier of Carolus-Duran (1837–1917), one of the few private instructors who accepted women. Carolus-Duran's influence was important to Claudine's artistic development, for he stressed form, color, and direct painting rather than the draftsmanship and finish emphasized by the conservative École. 

The Gilmans returned to Philadelphia and in 1882, Claudine began to exhibit at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Claudine (who signed her paintings "Claude") exhibited at the Academy's annual exhibitions until about 1891.
