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.

Billy Name was Warhol’s lover, friend and archivist of the Silver Factory. The East 47th Street space was coated in silver foil or silver spray paint (1964) and became a place for talents like The Velvet Underground, Nico Case and Edie Sedgwick to spend their time. Name’s images are now on exhibit in London.
Billy Name: The Silver Age is on show at Serena Morton II Gallery in London from 30 September – 23 October. The book is published by Reel Art Press
