I'm a multi-media artist who carves in marble and alabaster and writes plays. For PechaKucha, I will be telling the story of my play Urania, so if anyone has ever wondered about my hitchhiking through France to get to her chateau or why I'm so obsessed with Emilie du Châtelet, March 3rd is the night!
