Donald Weber's Art Education began as a part of his curriculum while earning a Bachelors of Architecture degree from the University of Kentucky. Today, in addition to his art career he is a licensed Architect working worldwide in the entertainment industry.
Weber has continued his art education through self-teaching and workshops with noted artists such as Kim English and Scott Burdick. Weber also attributes his development as an artist to many years designing and illustrating those designs for such companies as Parmount, 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."
He was a founding Board Member of the Kentucky School of Art at Spaulding University in Louisville Kentucky and sat on the Executive Committee for two years. KSA offers Bachelors of Fine Art Degrees. Weber and his brother Tom were the namesakes for The Weber Gallery in Louisville Kentucky. Their gallery offers art education and representation to Special Needs Students and exhibits and sells their work through side-by-side programs with professional artists. Weber occasionally exhibits there as a part of that program.
Mentors are many but some of his favorites include contemporary artists CW Mundy, Kim English, Scott Burdick, Irby Brown and Masters Llyia Repin, Joaquin Sorolla, JMW Turner, John Singer Sargent and Degas.
Weber and his wife Debra live in Santa Fe New Mexico and Louisville Kentucky. He works in his studios in both locations.
