Born in Paris, France, Francis Zimbeaux came to Utah in 1926. He was the only son of Lillian Clotilde Wehlish, a concert pianist in Europe and Frank Zimbeaux who was also an excellent artist and had a considerable influence on Utah Art. His very early art training came from time happily spent in his father's art studio. Formal art education came later at the Art Barn School with Bert Pumphrey and at the University of Utah with LeConte Stewart and Alvin Gittins. He lived in Salt Lake City, Utah until his passing in 2006 at age 93.
