Le Gear holds a studio at The Model in Sligo, Ireland. Her work has emerged from the outcomes of research, collaboration and fieldwork based around water and its memories held within

various water bodies from Arctic Icebergs, the Baltic sea and Irish lakes and waterfalls; listening to the mystical, mythical and metaphysical forces that act upon and interact with water. Her work finds form in moving image, the still image, sound, and the water remedies.
