Norma Jeanne Maloney has been working for 30 years as a sign painter and currently lives in Taylor, Texas, outside of Austin. She began her career in the 1980s, painting signs for the race tracks of Lexington, Kentucky, and later moved to San Francisco, California, to pursue a design degree from the California College of Arts and Crafts. In 1996, while still living in San Francisco, she founded Red Rider Studios, where she worked in the sign and scenic industry for commercials and film, an experience that continues to influence her vintage style. She relocated the business to Nashville, Tennessee, in 2001, and eventually took a break from sign painting to pursue her childhood dream of driving an 18-wheeler. Maloney did not stay away from the sign painting industry for long, as she re-opened Red Rider Studios in Austin, Texas, in 2006.
