Llewela Davies: Welsh Composer

I am curious to know more about this lady. I wonder if anyone has any information or even music! I know that one song was published.

"Llewela Davies. Welsh contemporary composer; born at Brecon, South Wales. She was a pupil of Macfarren. Her compositions comprise Three Sketches for orchestra, a Quartet for strings, various songs, etc.
A Sonata in E, for violin and piano, which is highly praised by
critics, was successfully performed at the Musical Artists Society, London, March, 1894.
Miss Davies gained admission to the RAM, 1897, by winning the John Thomas Scholarship. While pupil of said academy she took, among other prizes, the Macfarren Scholarship, 1892; the Lucas Medal, 1894, for composition; and the Medal of the Worshipful Company of Musicians, 1893."
