Clare Kolat is a Pop-Surrealist artist and designer from Cleveland, OH. She has a flair for the fantastic, and her work often bursts with bright colors and cheeky winks to the viewer. The female form and the natural realm are common elements in her work as she juxtaposes her figures with flora and fauna in sensual, magical dreamscapes.

She is also an independent comic creator. Clare's comics have been featured in such publications as Cleveland Scene Magazine, Vagabond Comics, and The Ohio City Tremont Observer. Her short comic "New Here" was nominated for the 2015 S.P.A.C.E. Prize.
