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.
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.
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.
