Ms. Zelfer-Redmond maintains a studio in Sioux City, Iowa.

About the artwork, Jan Zelfer-Redmond states: Most often, when I paint, I am responding to ideas which I've heard or read, that seem to verbalize exactly those unfiltered thoughts that were in my subconscious mind and not yet vocalized by me. My paintings start with a pre-verbal, intuitive and spontaneous process in order to recreate that area of ghost-like discovery. It is seldom that I begin a painting with any idea in mind of what that painting will look like when it is finished, but it is also seldom that I begin a painting without an idea in mind.
