Born in 1908 in Ealing, West London, Webb studied at Ealing and Chiswick Schools of Art and in 1925 won a scholarship to the Patrick Allan-Fraaser School of Art, Hospitalfield, Arbroath, Scotland. He began etching in 1927, returned to London in 1928 and taught etching under Hubert Schroder at Chiswick and with F L Griggs in Chipping Camden in 1929.
