Hi, I’m Clara Nartey. I’m a textile artist. I create art & content (videos, ebooks, articles) to help artists succeed doing what they love.
I love creating art and I love all the challenges involved in trying to bring an original thought into reality.
For the most updated information about what’s going on in my world of art, creativity and artrepreneurship, hop on over to my blog.
To learn a little bit more about me then continue right here.
Let’s start with a few fun facts about me….
I love to move to a good beat
I can’t carry a tune to save my life
I’m a “frequent smiler”
I often tear up at the issues of life
I’m an avid reader
I love to write too
I love, love, love the smell of coffee
You can not get me to drink a cup of joe. My cuppa tea will do just fine. Thank you.
I create original finished pieces of artwork
I’m a work-in-progress -waiting for the Master’s final brushstroke on the painting of my life.
I’m kind of ‘geeky’ (a computer science and statistics double major)
I’m passionate about art.
I see art wherever I go. When I open a book to read, I see art. When I turn on the computer, I see art. And when I lay me down to sleep, I dream art – I awake and begin to sketch. Art is part of my very being….
About My Art
My art is a journey of explorations and discoveries. My fascination with color pushes me to explore its depth, breadth, intensity, mood … Yes, color is infinitely multi-dimensional and a challenge to ‘capture’ into a framed piece of artwork.
My constant quest is not to capture or confine color, but to discover how to make it dance, jump, vibrate off my artwork.
I do this by making my mark on textiles with dyes, paints and threads. I express my ideas and emotions by giving color a voice to be heard, a beat to dance to, and a tune to sing by creating subtle and dramatic changes on fabric.
I believe that every day of our lives is a stroke of paint from the Creator’s brush working to reveal the awesome painting of our lives. Each day we inch closer to the revelation of the awesome beauty of that finished work.
Similarly, I get exhilarated as I near the end of creating a piece of artwork. I work in anticipation of the revelation of each finished work.
My hope is that as the viewer looks at my finished work, they get drawn in to explore and discover things which speak to them on a meaningful and personal level.
