By Mona Shah
Artist Clara Ines Thomas has been a painter and teacher for 20 years. She feels that being both an artist and educator compliment each other, as each serve as an inspiration to the other. Her love for art and education has come together in illustrations at the Milpitas Phantom Art Gallery in "Colored Faces."
A native of Colombia, Thomas studied Philosophy and Political Sciences through formal education, but her artistic skills - history, esthetics and philosophy - and techniques are self-taught. In addition to published illustrations, she participates in traditional art exhibitions in which a story is told through shapes, colors and textures.
The public is invited to visit the Phantom Art Gallery and "read" the story of Colored Faces.
