Hi. I've been editing Wikipedia for over 14 years, I have started over 1,000 articles, and I have uploaded over 4,500 of my own photographs under free licenses to Wikimedia Commons. I also am active on Wikidata and helped create the Sum of all Paintings project. I am the former Wikipedian-in-Residence at the Library of Congress and I was first Wikipedian-in-Residence at the Smithsonian - I served as a resident there, twice. I founded WikiProject Women artists and I'm credited with helping to publicize the movement focused on improving coverage about women on Wikipedia and to engage more women in contributing. I am an active member of Women in Red.
I am grateful for all the work people do to ensure underrepresented populations and subjects are covered on Wikipedia and for the support I have had during the hard times here on wiki.
