Clara Nartey is a self-taught artist who critiques beauty standards and examines the role of hair in the identity and culture of Black women. Her work, which has been widely exhibited nationally, is inspired by how fabrics are used in her African heritage to tell stories, memorialize events, and to share words of wisdom. Her portraits counter negative stereotypes about Black hair and build confidence in young girls and women.
