just a moment with Betty Busby

Take just a moment with Betty Busby, a prolific fiber artist and enthusiastic teacher from Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States of America.  Betty maintains a busy international exhibition schedule and I am delighted to include her artwork Song of the Tribolites.

Long before the age of the dinosaurs, trilobites of many sizes and shapes teemed throughout the oceans of the world. Looking at their fossils has always brought a fascination with our ability to look through deep time, and a feeling of humility when we reflect on the recent moment in history that humans have been on the earth.

See Betty in action this PBS interview with Betty Busby on the arts program Colores. (The main interview starts around the 2.10 minute mark.)
