Webberley has taught art at Seattle Pacific University and Bellevue Community College, and has presented workshops in bookbinding, sketching with watercolor and art as therapy. Her works have appeared on a variety of magazine covers in the United States and in India. She has written and illustrated articles on calligraphy, bookbinding, and illustrated, edited and co-authored BOOKS, BOXES, & WRAPS: Bindings & Building Step-by-Step (published 1995).
