Lynn is an Iowa native who grew up in the small town of Storm Lake. She attended college at University of Northern Iowa where she received her BA in Communicative Disorders. She taught Special Education classes for two years before staying home to raise her twin daughters. When it came time to get back into the workforce, she began a career in graphic design. Her eye for design and knack for creating exciting color combinations has now been focused on designing and sewing dog collars.
Lynn started her collar business with one sewing machine and a desire to create unique, quality collars for your best friend. What started as a hobby has grown into a full time business. She’s outgrown the guest bedroom and has more than one machine now but she is still firmly rooted in her commitment to produce the highest quality products… ones that you’ll be thrilled to put on your pet. Her collars are always proudly made in the U.S.A.
Lynn has always had a passion for all things “dog.” She shares her home with three Rhodesian Ridgebacks (Frankie, Shorty and Sally) and a rescued French Bulldog (Milly). She is actively involved in the local and national Rhodesian Ridgeback clubs, rescue groups and shelters, gardening and a never-ending pond project.
We love Lynn’s padded leather collars and leashes because of their high quality construction and unique design. We’re excited to have her on our Artisan team at dogIDs.com.
