Weber's art education began as part of his curriculum while earning a Bachelor's of Archtecture degree from the University of Kentucky. Today he is a licensed architect working worldwide in the entertainment industry as well as a fine artist.

He has continued his art education through self-teaching  and worskshops with noted artists such as Kim English and Scott Burdick. He attributes his development as an artist to many years of producing designs and illustrations fo companies such as Paramount, Nickelodeon, Warner Brothers, NASA, SeaWorld and Crayola.

"The expectations demanded from those levels of international brands set my design and technical skills bar pretty high, and that drive for quality has definitely transferred over to my fine arts pursuits.

His mentors are many, but some of his favorites include contemporary artist C. W. Mundy, Irby Brown, and Masters Lliya Repin, Joaquin Sorolla, J.M.W. Turner,  John Singer Sargent and Edgar Degas.
