Gwenllian was born and raised in rural mid-Wales, where she lived until she was 18. After finishing her A-levels she travelled the world for a year, working in South America, New Zealand and Asia. On her return to the UK, she completed a Foundation course in Art & Design at Carmarthen and went on to graduate from Nottingham Trent University with a BA (Hons) degree in Contemporary Arts. Gwenllian came back to Wales in 2000, when she began her career in television at the BBC. After a couple of years in the Arts Department, she moved to Drama to work with the design team on the first series of Doctor Who with Production Designer, Edward Thomas. In 2005 Gwenllian left the BBC to work for a new company specialising in adventure and anthropology documentaries, Indus Films. The first documentary she worked on, Flying with Kites, won two BAFTA Cymru Awards. She spent the next few years filming in remote locations such as Alaska, Everest and Timbuktu, producing and directing documentaries for various broadcasters, before becoming the company’s Head of Production in 2009. Since February 2013, Gwenllian has been working as a freelancer.
