Is my new solo exhibition opening at Bar Carlo December 28th, begins at 6pm. 6433 Foster Road, Portland, Oregon 97206

I have always found mollusks to be unusual and beautiful creatures.  Only recently did I discover they have a dangerous and destructive side too, so be warned!
Shocking revelations in my research were:

Some mollusks are carnivorous hunters, cannibals, lethally poisonous, destroyers of crops, carriers of diseases, eaters of stucco homes, destroyers of tires, and dangerous projectiles!
My collected paintings in “Murderous Mollusks” are done to illustrate the beauty and danger that exist simultaneously in these same creatures.
