Since discovering Wikipedia in 2003 I have been addicted to it. Firstly I used it for reference, but have since started to write my own articles. I'm sure you know what it is like to see all those red links that go nowhere, so I have become a Wikipedian.

My username, if you really need to know, comes from one of my favourite of artists - Tamara de Lempicka

My first article written for this site was for Clarice Cliff, the ceramic artist native to my own city - Stoke-on-Trent, another page which I have done a lot of work to. Eventually I hope to have everybody who was born in The Potteries linked up and written up, but that will take time.
