Linda, a member of the Port Clinton Artists’ Club who now resides in Texas, works in the art of scrimshaw. In the movie The Lone Ranger, Helena’s character Red Harrington has an ivory leg. In February 2012 Linda Karst Stone was chosen to create the prop for the movie. Linda practices the traditional method of scrimshaw, working by hand and not by machine.
