Sarah J. Webber

Sarah J. WebberSarah J. Webber’s journey as an artist has been surprising, challenging, fun and rewarding. It started as a whim in 2001 and became a somewhat late in life career choice after spending 10 years working in sales in art galleries in Jackson, Wy, Scottsdale AZ and Carmel, CA. Encouraged by one of her mentors, the late western artist/potter Bill Freeman, she learned what it’s like to work hard, observe life, and take criticism. She has put in alot of what she calls “brushstroke mileage” to get to the style of animal painting she has today. She feels that having something unique to say with your art is the only way to go.
One thing that is unique to her process is the naming of paintings before she starts them. That way she’s a narrative in mind and likes to tell a story as she paints. She is also known for her color. She enjoys finding nuance in warm color and lively grays and strives for an interesting harmony every time she picks up a brush. She has been fortunate in her career having studied and painted along side some incredible people such as Greg McHuron, John Moyers, Glenn Dean, Carol Swinney, Steven Datz, Logan Hagege, Kathy Wipfler, Matt Smith and of course Bill Freeman.Sarah J.

Webber has been blessed to participate to some major museum shows, such as Cowgirl Up!, Western Visions, Art of the Animal Kingdom, SEWE, Mountain Oyster Club and in 2009 the Clymer Museum in Ellensburg, WA hosted a major exhibition of her work. She has also had her work appear and be featured in such publications as Southwest Art, American Art Collector, Western Art Collector and Cowboys and Indians. Sarah J. Webber is a signature member of the American Women Artists group, an organization very important to her.
The current goal of this group is 25 museum shows and in 25 years which recently included shows at the Tucson Desert Art Museum and the upcoming Rockwell Museum in Corning, NY. The American Women Artists recently honored her with an Award of Excellence in November 2017 which she is very proud of.
She’s been busy showing her work in many galleries over the years and enjoys being a gallery artist, which at the present Shubhpujaincludes representation in Scottsdale, AZ, Tucson, AZ, Santa Fe, NM and Bordentown City, NJ. Recently her workshop, “Barnyard Brushstrokes” has been selling out and teaching has become a very rewarding component of her journey as an artist. There is more to come!
She just keeps painting. Someone once told her when things are down, to just “keep painting”. It is good advice. She currently lives and paints in Jackson, WY, Tucson, AZ and in 2018 she will spend some time in Palm Springs, CA.
Of course, Sarah J. Webber will be accompanied by her cute little chocolate labrador, “Betsy”.
