Webber attended Northwestern University and the Oxbow Summer School of Painting in Saugatuck prior to receiving a B.F.A from the Art Institute of Chicago and an M.F.A from Mexico City College in 1952. He was awarded a Fulbright fellowship in 1952 for travel in Latin America, and spent several years in Spain prior to joining the faculty at the University of Michigan in 1955. He also held teaching positions at the Centro de Estudios Universitarios in Mexico City, his alma mater the Oxbow Summer School of Painting, and the University of Michigan Extension Service in Dearborn and Battle Creek. He was a member of the Ann Arbor Art Association and served on the Associations board of directors. Weber's work combines traditional subject matter, such as landscapes, nudes, and interiors, with an abstract expressionist style that is characterized by strong brush work and vivid color.
