Claire Keane is an American illustrator and visual development artist, who contributed to the Disney films: Enchanted, Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, and Frozen.

Claire is the daughter of Disney Legend Glen Keane, and granddaughter of cartoonist Bil Keane, creator of the comic strip, The Family Circus. Claire studied at the Ecole Superieure D'Arts Graphiques in Paris where she met her husband and part-time collaborator, Vincent Rogozyk.

As a conceptual artist during the production of Tangled, Claire's work spanned the visual development seen through the entire film, but her work was arguably most visible as the murals the character Rapunzel paints on the wall of her home.[1]

During the production of Tangled, Claire hand painted Rapunzel's mural on a wall in the art department of the Walt Disney Animation Studios.[2][3] Claire also illustrated the Disney storybook, Rapunzel's Amazing Hair (ISBN 9781423128182).[4]

For Enchanted, Claire worked with costume designer Mona May to help realize Giselle's dresses.[5]

In 2013, Claire left Disney to focus on writing and illustrating children's books.[6]
