“But in 2004 Charles Saatchi saw one of her paintings of Princess Diana […] bought it for £600, and made it the centrepiece of his New Blood show at County Hall. […] She only met him for two minutes but he changed her life. […] after the Saatchi show she took on too much work, so she started using cocaine to stay awake and ended up with a £600-a-week habit. […] the galleries she admired all told her to go away and learn to paint and maybe come back in a year.”
