Carol Irving is a Michigan-based fiber artist, weaving bright and stimulating images into her rugs. In her work, the artist seeks to convey her passion for fiber, color, and design brought together in excellent craftsmanship. She weaves her richly colored yarns on a loom much the way people have been weaving for centuries. Each rug is a totally unique piece of American Craft.
Award-winning artist Carol Irving has announced that her installation of handwoven wall hangings was chosen for a group art exhibition. She is among other artists featured at the 10th Annual ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Mich. Her chosen piece is called “A Weaver’s Journal of Endangered Wildflowers,” a series of 12 handwoven wall hangings made of wool and linen that are three-feet by five-feet each.
"Carol's work is stunning, each piece is clearly and thoughtfully designed and meticulously crafted. She has a very sophisticated design sense."
