Nina K. Brisley
(1898 - 1978)
Nina Kennard Brisley studied at Lambeth School of Art and exhibited at the Royal Academy. Beginning in 1923, she illustrated the Chalet School series by Elinor Brent-Dyer. She illustrated books by many others. In the 1950’s her illustrations were turned into postcards. Her simple line-block style continues to have considerable appeal.
Nina was a sister of Joyce Lancaster Brisley who often omitted the surname.
