exceptional talent and doesn’t shy away from the praise he has received. “I’m proud of my work, so I like being called a genius.” The subject of many TV documentaries,


Stephen – who studied Fine Art at City & Guilds – has also had four books published with Floating Cities going straight to No1 in the Sunday Times Bestseller List. Each year his career continues to present new, exciting opportunities, which his family believe is testament to his hard work and desire to be the best he can. Annette says: “Stephen doesn’t


understand autism and as a family we never felt the need to make him understand what autism is. He understands he’s special, as every child is, and we support him and encourage him as a family.


“Stephen is not afraid of hard work


or challenge. The bigger the challenge, the more he embraces it. He puts his own pressure on himself and never complains, he just takes a deep breath and deals with it. Stephen believes in his work and himself and we can all learn a lot from that.”


Stephen’s entire career is permanently on display alongside new originals and prints available for sale at the Stephen Wiltshire Gallery in the Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mall, London. www.stephenwiltshire.co.uk
