Artist Bio

The son of a professional photographer, Webb was immersed in the creative process from  birth. There was never a time a camera was not present documenting every step of life. His earliest memories include working in a darkroom with his father, the faint glow of the safelight above as he witnessed images come to life through the development process. From this grew his ability to visualize images and understand the importance of the creative process and the impact of design.

 

Life took Webb far away from the art world when he enlisted in the United States Navy in 2004. After serving 7 years on active duty, he transitioned to the Reserve force where he continues to serve today as a Senior Chief Petty Officer. He has served multiple shipboard and ground-based tours in the Middle East, to include combat operations in Iraq. It is through these experiences that he rekindled his passion for the visual arts, discovering abstract painting as a way to navigate his emotional and physical responses to his experiences overseas and cope with reintegration into civilian life. 

 

Intrigued by how individuals in our veteran community cope with their scars - both internal and external - Webb uses his artistry to explore the residual effects of wartime experiences. Employing  the deconstruction of acrylics, watercolors, photography, and various mixed media materials, he aims to find beauty in the interpretation and visualization of those interactions. 

 

Webb currently resides and works in Petaluma, California, and  hopes to inspire and empower other veterans to explore art as therapy and help others better understand the impact of veteran experiences.
