I'm Linda Plaisted, an award-winning, classically-trained American painter, photographer, encaustic and mixed media artist who has exhibited my work in galleries and museums around the world. I've also created book and magazine cover illustrations for major publishers and been a pioneer in contemporary photomontage, founding Many Muses Studio in Washington, DC in 2000 as a place to explore the marriage of many media.
Each piece of artwork I create is a story, layered by hand with images I have captured in my original photography, drawings, paintings and collected ephemera to create mixed media pieces with subtle depth and dreamlike detail.
My unique vision for the landscapes in which we live, reverence for the natural world and ability to conjure bittersweet emotion from calming, uncluttered compositions is my trademark narrative style.
