Hey, guys, I know it's been, like, five years since I last posted here, or something ridiculous like that, but the other day I was going through the tupperwares where I store my old art and I had the thought of updating this page. I had taken a long break from art, and I had some other projects I was working on (writing, doll fashion, my new baby daughter, y'know, the usual), but lately I've circled back around to art, and so I thought it'd be nice to check back in here. I haven't done new Les Mis art for a few years now, but I did have a bunch of pieces that were uploaded to tumblr once upon a time but were never uploaded to deviantArt. I'll post those here in the coming weeks, in approximate chronological order, along with whatever other art I was working on over the years. When I get done working through that backlog, I'll post some of what I've been working on lately. Thanks to any of my followers who are still hanging around, and I look forward to meeting some new ones, too!

Hey guys, just wanted to let everyone know that I've got a tumblr now: Virago!  It'll be for my new novel, Virago (based on characters from Les Misérables), and I'll post excerpts and art there, as well as historical context stuff for the 1820s/1830s.  If that interests any of my fans here, you can follow my tumblr and see what I come up with! For now, I'm going to post some of my art for the novel here, though I don't yet know if I'll keep up with this page in the future.  I'm also debating whether or not to start a Pinterest page.  I love finding historical fashion pics there, but I'm not sure if it would serve my purpose.  Can any of
