Nicola Gear

Unit 18: former ‘The Highland Cake Fairy’

Nicola Gear is a visual artist living on a converted barge on the Caledonian Canal and farming a croft in Diabaig. Her sound installation in unit 18, 'Ceilidh Kitchen', explores how food nourishes stories.


Drawing is the quiet place that forms and feeds Nicola’s work; moving through the landscape on the boat, working the croft or in the city.  Drawings develop in two different sketchbooks, one traditional and one digital audio recorder.  From there her work branches out into public space, collaborating, involving people, using interactive installations, performance and sound.
