Gee Vaucher was born in 1945 in Dagenham, East London.

Her work with Anarcho-punk band Crass was seminal to the 'protest art' of the 1980s. Vaucher has always seen her work as a tool for social change. In her collection of early works (1960-1997) Crass Art and Other Pre Post-Modernist Monsters, Gee is shown to use paints and collages to show her strong anarcho-pacifist, and feminist views through her artwork. Gee also uses the surrealist method to express her aforementioned ideals and styles.

In Gee's second book, Animal Rites, she gives a commentary on the relationship between animals and humans, centered on the quote " All humans are animal, but some animals are more human than others".

In the foreword to her 1999 retrospective collection Crass Art and Other Pre Post-Modernist Monsters, Ian Dury writes;

She continues to design sleeves for Babel Label and has exhibited at the 96 Gillespie gallery in London. In 2007 and 2008 the Jack Hanley Gallery in San Francisco and Track 16 in Santa Monica ran exhibitions entitled "Gee Vaucher: Introspective", showing a wide selection of Vaucher's work.

Vaucher's film Gower Boy, made in collaboration with pianist Huw Warren, debuted at the 14th Raindance Film Festival in London in October 2006.[1]
