About Me[edit]

WPVA-khamsa.svgThis user is a member of the
WikiProject Visual arts.







Greetings! My name is Sionk and I've been active on Wikipedia since 2007. I have two university degrees and a wide range of interests, so hopefully my contributions will be useful. Of course, I welcome any constructive comments, criticism or advice (see my 'Talk' page).

Be reassured, I try to add useful information, while deleting the bad. I've written many articles myself and I've been an active reviewer at Articles for Creation. And I know Wikipedia can be a bewildering place for newcomers so I'll try my utmost to be patient and helpful if anyone has questions.
