When I first set up the Art Haus shop things were very difficult again. There was problems with money and a lot of local people were putting down my work. That’s when I did the first ‘square sheep’. It just came to me, I don’t know why. But I knew straight away why it was square. Sexism, racism, homophobia, bigotry, conformity, that’s what it represented.

I work here in my shop, with this big wide window. Everyone can see in, see what I do – where are no tricks! It’s not a gift from God, I’m just a normal bloke doing my job, like anybody else.
