Jenny Zeller was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. Upon graduating with a degree in Arts Administration from the University of Kentucky in 1995, she moved to Key West, where she evolved as an artist and an individual. In addition to founding Off the Beaten Path Productions, which produced artistic events showcasing local artists in alternative spaces, she served as long time director of two prominent galleries, each with a focus in international art and artifacts. Early in her career, she was named the 2001 Monroe County recipient of the South Florida Cultural Consortium Award for her documented images of Haiti, developed in the style of 19th century photographs. In addition, she is a three time Anne McKee grant recipient and an artist-in-residence at the Nantucket Island School of Art & Design awarded by the Rodel Foundation of Key West in 2006. After years of island living, Jenny returned to Louisville, in search of a life less career focused and more passion driven. Being named a 2014 Al Smith Fellowship Award recipient by the Kentucky Arts Council is a direct result of mindful and creative living. From 2013 to 2015, Jenny was the Photographer, Artist in Residence at St. Francis School, where she taught an elective photography course to high school students. Since then she has moved from classroom to the community, teaching a variety of specialized workshops as well as private instruction in photographic mixed-media. Jenny is currently working with the Louisville Photo Biennial, helping bring arts education to underserved community centers in the Metro Louisville area. Her latest body of work, Luminiferous: Adventures in Metal was exhibited at the University of Alabama in Huntsville in March 2016.
