Linda Plaisted is an award-winning, classically-trained American painter, fine art photographer, encaustic and mixed media artist. Her art has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. She has also illustrated numerous book and magazine covers for major publishers and her art has been placed in private and corporate collections worldwide. You may have seen her artwork on all the design blogs such as Design*Sponge, Apartment Therapy and Daily Candy.
Each piece of artwork she creates tells a story. She layers by hand images she has captured in her original photography, drawings, paintings and collected ephemera to create mixed media pieces with subtle depth and dreamlike detail. Her 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 her trademark narrative style.
As a pioneer in contemporary photomontage, she founded Many Muses Studio in 2000 as a place to explore the marriage of many media. She is currently a resident artist with studios at The Griffin Art Center in Frederick, Maryland.
