Born in Raleigh NC, Clara "Shadow" Debnam is the youngest of the nine that make up the Debnam clan. Her creative abilities were recognized at an early age. She credits her gifts and nonconformist approach to life to God, by way of her mother and father, Ms. Dorothy Debnam and the late Rev. Chester Debnam.
After Graduating from Divinity School in May of 2017, and ending an eleven year career in Sales and Marketing, Clara relocated to Washington D.C. to pursue a year of Discipleship, with The Festival Center. She is grateful for this year of service and sacrifice, but most of all a year of creativity.
