Courtesy of Sue Paterson Sue Paterson’s new exhibit “Bursting into Life” reveals as much about where she grew up and has lived as it does about the risks that she’s taking herself. Raised in a small town on the South Island of New Zealand called Invercargill, Paterson was always artistic. “I had a very creative grandmother, who really taught me to see the detail in the world and in nature,” Paterson noted. “And of course I couldn’t help but being influenced by her.
