Trained as a printmaker, Gaye Paterson within her art practice explores a diverse range of mediums and their application in politically motivated bodies of work - and the plight of refugees in particular. Paterson has lived in countries throughout the world, including Myanmar, Greece, Switzerland, the Former Yugoslavia and Thailand: wherever she has lived, Paterson has become involved in the world around her.
