My family has — I come from a theater background.1 My father worked at the BBC, and my mother was an actress. So, I was brought up surrounded by creative people in more — in this kind of theater world, and then for a while I worked in the opera, and I did kind of stage management and wardrobe kind of stuff. So, my kind of entry into kind of the art world was more a way of somehow doing something that was different to my family, though looking back at that now, that seems laughable. It’s not really that different, but at the time it seemed, in my mind, a hugely different world that was going to be mine, so that I didn’t feel like I was kind of continuing in the kind of territory of my family and the people that surrounded me when I was growing up.
