She believes that being creative, in whatever form this takes, is fundamental to our well-being and that we are all innately creative in one way or another. The trick to this is living mindfully and in the moment, opening our senses to all that is both around and in us.

Gaynor has published books on memory, the making of histories and on the First World War.

She now chairs a charity, Open-Up Music, that empowers young disabled musicians to build inclusive youth orchestras. Together the charity develops accessible musical instruments and repertoire, challenges expectations and forges new progression routes through the creation of great music. By 2018, it will have the National Open Youth Orchestra up and running.

Gaynor lives in South Wales with three cats and a view over the mountains.

People Say…

"The course content … involved drawing, painting, writing, guided meditation and dancing. At its best the course allowed participants to freely experiment with different forms of expression. I particularly liked exercises involving writing from experience and creating a collage around an outline of the body. There was a good balance between individual work and sharing achievements with others. "
