Artist Statement

"In Jane Eyre, fire symbolizes Jane\'s strengths and her personality while the red room she is forced into during childhood is symbolic of the restrictions that are forced upon her as an orphan and then as a governess by class obsessed, Victorian society. I found it important to juxtapose these prominent symbols for the cover as Jane battles the restrictions that the red room symbolizes throughout the book. For the red room, I incorporated a red damask print. The red damask is being burned away while trying to conceal the matches and the sparks below that are meant to represent Jane Eyre and her strength." - Victoria Michalski
