"Inspired by many muses...painter, photographer, writer, teacher, still learning..
Linda Plaisted is a classically-trained American painter, photographer and mixed media artist who has exhibited her work in galleries and museums throughout North America. She founded Many Muses Studio in 2000 to establish a place to explore the marriage of many media.
Her work is held in private collections worldwide and the corporate collections of such companies as Mastercard International, McGraw- Hill, CVS/Caremark, Standard & Poor's, Ritz-Carlton Hotels and Marc Jacobs, Inc. You may have seen her images on book covers or web sites such as Daily Candy, Design*Sponge, IndieLove, Apartment Therapy, Viewville, Velocity Art & Design and many more.
A pioneer in contemporary photographic illustration and photomontage, each piece of artwork she creates is layered by hand with images she has captured in her photographs, drawings, paintings and collected ephemera to create mixed media pieces with subtle depth and detail. Her unique ability to conjure bittersweet emotion from the simplest of compositions is her trademark narrative style."
