Sea Dean “I have wanted to paint with my mother for many years. She was the first person to inspire me to draw, sitting together at the dining room table. She has always encouraged my work and likes to make suggestions, so it was natural to ask her to collaborate on the intergenerational show.

We started with a blank canvas, I asked Charlotte to suggest subject and colour scheme. As I painted, I asked for feedback. Some things Charlotte suggested were very challenging, because I would normally make different choices.

This was our first collaborative effort and it took a while to learn to work together productively. I decided to take a back seat and Charlotte became the project manager with my hands putting her thoughts into action. This painting went through many versions until we both agreed it was finished.
