Jeff Zilm is a contemporary artist who works with acrylic and gelatin emulsions to create monochrome abstract works. Jeff Zilm was born in Iowa City, Iowa in the year 1958.

Zilm earned B.F.A. from the University of North Texas. Zilm went on to postgraduate studies earning a M.F.A. from Southern Methodist University located in Dallas, Texas.

Zilm begins his creative process by collecting old film in various sizes including 8mm, 16mm, and 35mm. To this he adds detergent which strips the emulsion from the film. Zilm then adds acrylic paint to this liquid mixture. Zilm then applies this mixture to the canvas using brushes.

Zilm is now based out of Dallas, Texas.
