PA Artist of the Year 2018
Clare Klaum is a Central Pennsylvania pastel artist. She loves the vibrancy and intensity of chalk pastels, making her paintings jump off the page. Her paintings of nature evokes the pure joy of life and all that God has created. She has cultivated a passion for art through most of her life, but it has only been over the last 12 years that she has studied under award-winning artists and perfected her skills in pastels. Flora and fauna are among her favorite choices of subject matter. Her painting, Oriole Splashdown, (with a surreal twist) was juried into Art of the State Pennsylvania 2017. One of her specialties is pet portraits.
Clare’s artwork can be found at several local galleries.
