September 17, 2018 – Betty Busby played at “Arts and Crabs” with her two little sisters as a small child, and continued her obsession through graduation from the Rhode Island School of Design, with a ceramics major.
She founded and operated a ceramic tile manufacturing firm in Los Angeles, and sold it after 18 successful years in order to move to New Mexico to raise her son.
Betty began quilt making in the 1970s. She picked old clothes out of trash cans and took apart curtains and dyed them. Today she works with all types of fabric, and her favorite materials are cottons, silks, and even polyester and nylon. She works alone so all of her pieces are designed and handmade by her.
She is a published fiber artist and teacher, and maintains a busy exhibition schedule nationally and internationally. She currently lives in Albequerque, New Mexico.
