Brenda Chamberlain

Painter and writer Brenda Chamberlain ( 1912-1971) lived on the island of Bardsey from 1947-1961, during the last days of its hardy community. The combination of Bardsey, site of ancient Christian pilgrimage, wild and dangerous landscape, and Chamberlain, Royal Academy trained artist, resulted in a classic book, vividly illustrated by the author’s line drawings.
