Plakas received the Conger Goodyear Award for Studio Art upon graduation. Her 50+ page sketchbook collaboration with Walt Whitman's poetry was displayed at the Walt Whitman Museum for his 200th Bicentennial Celebration. Plakas' artworks have been in twelve different exhibitions and in FOURALL Magazine and illustrated the cover of “The Garden,” a novel by K. S. Birch. She currently resides and works in New York.
