Verily Magazine: Jane Eyre illustration

Jane Eyre_Samantha Hahn
After illustrating 50 of the most beloved heroines in literature for my book Well-Read Women I thought I’d painted my last heroine. Nevertheless, Verily Magazine hit me up to illustrate Jane Eyre for a story on girl power in the classics. I was of course thrilled to portray Jane as I see her and of course as Charlotte Brontë described her.

p.s Have you seen the Well-Read Women reader’s journal?

    Hi Samantha! I’m the writer for this Verily story. After seeing your beautiful illustration of Jane, I had to look up your work. Your style is absolutely lovely. And you can imagine my excitement when I realized you’ve illustrated a whole series of heroines. 😉 I’ll definitely check out your book!

    Mary Claire, Thanks so much for touching base. I was excited with Katherine reached out to me to illustrate Jane Eyre. I love painting literary heroines obviously….since I did 50 for my book. I’m glad you will check it out. Many of the characters you mentioned in the article are in there! Keep in touch. -Sam
