In My Words:
I’m a telemark skier, backpacker, trail runner, and animal lover. Playing outside is where I’m happiest, and my creativity soars in sunshine. Long before I studied art in the mountains of Aix-en-Provence, France, I fell madly in love with painting in nature. As a mother of two young girls, my joyous return to plein air is heightened by the opportunity to share the value of the arts and the beauty of the outdoors with my growing family. When I hike my easel around the trails near our home in Boulder and beyond, I quickly work to capture the little story in the scenes I discover. I’m lucky to call this stunning location home, and feel compelled to share the light and curves of this amazing place with eyes near and far.
Lindsay Jane Ternes is an award-winning artist based in Boulder, Colorado. Born in Billings, Montana and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Lindsay’s passion for art was apparent from a young age and never waned. At the University of Denver she majored in Marketing and Studio Art to equip herself for a future in fine art. While there Lindsay focused on figure painting, later rediscovering her love for landscape painting while studying at The Marchutz School of Fine Arts in Aix-en-Provence. Her time in Southern France greatly influences her scene selection and light interpretation today.
After years away from a serious studio discipline, Lindsay committed herself to becoming a professional artist while raising her young children. She typically works on location, painting “en plein air,” in and around her home in Boulder, Colorado, but you’ll also find her painting in Glacier National Park each summer. Lindsay’s work can be found at Spirits in the Wind Gallery in Golden, Colorado, as well as Frame of Reference Fine Art in Whitefish, Montana.
