I'm Linda Plaisted, an award-winning, classically-trained American painter, fine art photographer, encaustic and mixed media artist. My art has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. I've also illustrated numerous book and magazine covers for major publishers and had my art placed in private and corporate collections worldwide. You've seen my artwork on all the design blogs such as Design*Sponge, Apartment Therapy and Daily Candy.
Each piece of artwork I create tells a story. I layer by hand 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 dreamy evocative compositions is my trademark narrative style.
As a pioneer in contemporary photomontage, I founded Many Muses Studio in Washington, DC in 2000 as a place to explore the marriage of many media. I am currently a resident artist with studios at The Griffin Art Center in Frederick, Maryland. Fine art originals and limited edition prints are available. Studio visits by appointment.
