Carol LeBaron Photo Gallery (Feature story supplement.)
January 27, 2007LeBaron began creating textile art in the 1970s when she lived on a farm and raised sheep in Tillson, New York. She wove mandalas and handbags from handspun wool and sold them at craft fairs before entering the Rhode Island School of Design where she did undergraduate work in weaving.
Today, LeBaron's work is a combination of contemporary aesthetic, modern technology, and ancient techniques. Materials include wool and cashmere for the clamp resisted pieces, while her Jacquard work combines merino wool, rayon, and other synthetic fibers.
LeBaron's clamped wool and Jacquard works have been exhibited nationally and have won several awards. Her work has been published in the Surface Design Journal. In 2005, her works were featured in the Tennessee Arts Commission Gallery in Nashville.
