I have always made things, my first works were sculpture, abstract ready made when I was fifteen. I had never heard of a ready made but by chance i was on a school visit to the Commonwealth Institute in London. In the foyer was  what looked like bits of metal randomly assembled. I asked my teacher what it was “sculpture” he said. 

Later I found out it was by Anthony Caro. What amazed me was that it was made from ordinary materials, things I recognised and I thought it was amazing. A few months later I was taken to the ICA and saw the work of Kienholtz. This was like a revelation. All of the small water colours, sketches, cartoons and poetry that I had been doing in secret made sense. I always knew I was different

- I was an artist.
