Zenk (1904-2000) was born in New York and attended the National Academy of Design and The Art Students League. Afterwards, he moved to Utica, New York and was active in its artistic community. In 1937, he had a one-man show at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute, Utica. In 1942, the museum purchased his first work. In the 1940s, he started making woodblock prints for which he became known. Later he moved to Bucks County, Pennsylvania where he spent the rest of his career.
