He says of his experiences on the course:

"I come here to do artwork at City Lit, get ideas into my head. I’m always on time, drawing and painting, I like being in exhibitions, and people say nice things about my artwork; it makes me happy. Sometimes they get sold and people buy my artwork. I get up in the morning and I come here on my own, I am an independent traveller from near Limehouse. I catch two trains to City Lit. I change at Mile End on to the Central Line which gets me to Holborn. It’s an interesting place, I can meet other people who like art, because it’s a good college, the best college. It makes me feel good inside and proud about coming to college. I want to keep doing my artwork and sell it."
