Lynn Hunter Swan was born in Lowell, Indiana, but came to Iowa to attend Drake University where she met and married an Iowa State senior who swept her off her feet and carried her off to a farm in Dickens (northwest), Iowa. She eventually earned her B.A. from Buena Vista University in Music Education with a minor in Art, where she first discovered a fascination with weaving and design. Her formal art training added new dimensions to her life-long love of textiles, fibers, needlework and sewing.

After semi-retiring from a 28 year career as an interior designer, for many years owner of Lynn Hunter Swan Interiors in Spencer, she is returning to playing with strands of what ever catches her fancy... primarily weavings of miscellaneous fibers and yarns, collages of paper, etc. and also Crazy Patch quilting.

Her work is currently shown at Arts on Grand, Spencer, From our Hands, Des Moines, the Octagon, Ames, IA and in Oct., N.W. Iowa's Artisan's Road Trip.
