Paton's keen interest in photography began in 1981 while in the throes of a groundbreaking career training and driving Standardbred racehorses. She went on to study at the International Center of Photography in New York City, learning the intricacies of night photography from Michael Kenna and darkroom printing from her mentor and collaborator, master printer, Chuck Kelton.

Paton had her first solo exhibition in New York City at Sous Les Etoiles Gallery in 2010 and has had numerous exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the U.S. and Europe.

Her photographs are included in the permanent collections of Musee de la Photographie, James A. Michener Art Museum, Lumiere Brothers Center of Photography in Moscow, International Center of Photography, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, Personal Collection of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco as well as other notable private collections.
