Colby K Smith received his B.F.A. from Emporia State University and his M.F.A. from Southern University of Illinois at Carbondale.

In 2003, he opened Gallery HQ, an alternative contemporary art space that occupied locations in the West Bottoms and in the Crossroads Gallery District. In 2004, Smith closed Gallery HQ to dedicate his time and energy to developing Studios Inc, where he currently serves as Director, and to focus on his career as a professional artist. Smith continues to create and exhibit multi-media work that has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the Midwest. In Kansas City, he has exhibited at Millennic Glass, The Late Show, Society for Contemporary Photography, and Studios Inc Exhibition Space.
