I Am An Artisan

At Artisan Optics we share the love. Love of our community and the people who make this a special place to live. People we think you'd like to get to know. Some are dedicated eyewear enthusiasts, while others are newbies to the world of fabulous eyewear.



Meet Linda Lloyd – one of our very own and purveyor of amazing wines. When Linda isn't here at Artisan Optics you'll find her at City Center Wines in Old Boise. Where, as owner of City Center Wines, wine tasting is one of her job duties. Chuckle if you will, but her recommends are always spot on. Linda can help you navigate the huge selection of wines from around the world. There's so much to choose from! You're sure to discover a new favorite.

Linda had been a part of the international eyewear industry for many years before relocating to Boise, where she and Artisan Optics discovered one another. Linda has an eye for the exceptional, and knows how to perfectly pair eyewear and the customer. For herself, Linda turns to Theo for a bold, fashion forward look.



Meet Tim Dickerson, LMT, CMT and owner of Pur Zen Massage Therapy here in Boise. Tim popped into Artisan Optics with an open mind and a willingness to let our Opticianistas have some fun. Our favorite kind of customer! Tim discovered lots of new shapes and colors before going with the recommend of the day. A striking textured sunglass from Anne Valentin. What a great new look, and just in time for summer!

If you're like us, you've been hearing the buzz around town about Pur Zen Massage Therapy. After meeting Tim we can see why. If you've been thinking it's time for a real massage or been looking for an experience bodywork practitioner, checkout Tim Dickerson, LMT, CMT and Pur Zen Massage Therapy.



Meet Micaela. Micaela is a college student who decided to change up her look with a new pair of glasses. She tried on a lot of cool frames, but when she put on this Anne et Valentin we all knew this was the one. Micaela discovered that the neutral tone combined with shiny gold was the edgy look she hoped to find – and what girl doesn't love gold!

With her new sophisticated, stylish look Micaela is ready for any occasion. She makes the easy breezy transition from student in the classroom, to working college student on the job, to a night out with friends.

Micaela loves the idea of having a great pair of glasses that will be in style for years to come because she plans to add more! This is the beginning of Micaela's eyewear wardrobe. We can't wait to see what's next!

Sara Jo


Meet Sara John. The beauty, brains and innovation behind Reforming Every Body. Sara was on the hunt for a pair of glasses she just couldn't say no to. We jumped into action knowing we had to find a frame this is as outgoing and fun as she is. Sara fell in love with a beautiful cat-eye to add to her eyewear wardrobe and then we spotted a sunglass that was a must have – both from the Anne et Valentin collection. Sara left all smiles with both pair.

We first heard about Sara from another one of our customers. Who was excited to share that each session is a private one-on-one with Sara herself - who works hard to make sure you get the most out of every session. Your workout goal is her workout goal.
