I met Barbara Dybala about eight years ago when she was leading the Fairy Tree mosaic project for the Sunnyvale Garden Club. I was a new resident of Sunnyvale, and didn’t know anyone in town.

She invited me to participate in a workshop where she taught club members

 how to mosaic various components of the Fairy Tree.  Barbara instigated the project because she was concerned that new housing areas were destroying the native trees in the area. Her project goal was to educate the next generation on the value of native trees of Texas. She selected five native trees and created personalities for each. The elementary school children wrote stories about each fairy tree, which accompanied the exhibit. She approached Sunnyvale Garden Club for funding and volunteers. The tree was initially exhibited at the State Fair of Texas, but is now permanently housed at the Sunnyvale Middle School. Barbara is an excellent facilitator and teacher as well as a master mosaicist. After conceiving the beautiful and whimsical design, she recruited members and residents and taught them how to mosaic. She galvanizes groups to rally around a cause with her vision, creativity and humor. Her reassuring attitude and confidence in our nascent mosaic skills made the project a delight to work on. Her ability to motivate people to volunteer lots of time and hard work to achieve a common goal is extraordinary. (Ask her how many friends helped her mosaic the barn in her backyard!) The City of Norman wants to engage the community in their mosaic project and Barbara has been leading community engagement art projects for many years now. I think it would be a match made in heaven! I highly recommend her for the project.
