Welcome to my website! My name is Betty Busby. I am an artist living in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I am a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, where I majored in ceramics. After RISD, I founded a ceramic tile manufacturing studio in Los Angeles, ran it for 18 years, and sold it to move to New Mexico. I am happy to say that it is still in business today.

I have been working full-time making fiber art and teaching since 2003.

The Fiber Gallery and Collage Gallery contain full (and some detail) images of my work.
