An interview with Stephen Wiltshire:

The home I grew up in ... 

is in Little Venice, Maida Vale, London. They have some beautiful houses there: luxury flats, boats and barges, and my mum's house.

When I was a child I wanted to be ... 

an artist, drawing with pen and pencil. I used to do architectural designs for buildings, penthouses, skyscrapers, Canary Wharf, New York, LA and Chicago. I also got into drawing classic American cars.

The moment that changed me for ever ... 

was when I was at Queensmill School [in London]. I used to draw animals, and at the age of seven suddenly found London landmarks very interesting. My teacher Chris Marris took me out for trips to discover them. By 14 I was commissioned to draw the developing Canary Wharf.
