Following a 15 year career as an art therapist working mainly with adults who have a learning disability, Dr Mair Rees returned to full-time education to study for a BA Welsh at Cardiff University in 2004. Subsequently, she was fortunate enough to win a scholarship which also enabled her to undertake a PhD in Welsh literature. Since graduating in 2012 Mair has worked as a creative editor with Gomer Press, Llandysul. She regularly contributes reviews and articles to Welsh journals and also has a small business making quirky Welsh-language gifts and cards. Mair is contributing to the collection of the Welsh language data and providing language-specific expertise throughout the project.
