|Carpenters Road Studios, Stratford, East London|
At first I rented one of the starter studios on the ground floor which was a large room sub-divided into six, partitioned off from each other, yet still somewhat open plan. My studio had a skylight, whilst some of the adjoining studios had no natural light at all. I worked there for four years before moving to a bigger studio in the same development when I was finally able to afford more space."
