Lindsey Malone is a Colorado based painter who has been creating art since she was very young. Her parents enrolled her in the Bemis School of Art at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center just shortly after discovering her penchant for drawing on the walls of her bedroom when she was just five years old. She continued pursuing her love of art at Cheyenne Mountain Junior High and High School where her teachers encouraged her to take AP Art studies and independent studies in art so she could have access to the art studio throughout the day. She developed a love of bright colors and a different way of painting during her high school years.
Lindsey pursued a degree in Art Education at Colorado State University where she earned a scholarship to run track and field. She graduated with a BA in Art with concentrations in Education and Painting while earning her teachers license to teach students from kindergarten to twelfth grade. She later joined the coaching staff at Colorado State University where she coached men's and women's track and field for six years. Lindsey joined the staff at the University of Colorado in 2007 where she continues to coaches men's and women's track and field currently. She also competed as a professional athlete within three national organizations during 2001-2016: USA Track and Field, USA Bobsled and Skeleton and USA Shooting.
Throughout this time Lindsey continued to paint and paint and paint. In 2014, after creating 18 paintings over 24"x48" within one year, her family encouraged her to start sharing her work with others. In December of 2016, after a heart-to-heart conversation with her Dad, she posted her first image. In her words, "I had always painted because there was something beautiful inside me that I wanted or needed to put on a canvas. It brings me such joy to see the final product. I feel like I'm painting from my soul. It is such an extreme honor to get to share that joy with others".
Lindsey began selling her work with the Buffalo Belles at the University of Colorado in 2017 and has since sold to collectors across the country. An avid adventurer and lover of all things artistically related, you can find her traveling across the world studying the greatest works from history or at the local Performing Arts Center applauding the incredible performers and artists.
