Lina Prairie

    Lina Jane Prairie never thought she’d be an artist, let alone one who works with kelp.But, the Inverness Ridge resident and retired schoolteacher has been one for the past 12 years.

    Prairie spends her days walking local beaches in search of kelp. Working outdoors, the self-taught artist weaves kelp into baskets and creates sculptural pieces. Her works have been displayed at Olema’s Sir and Star, Toby’s Art Gallery and at her studio during the bi-yearly Point Reyes Open Studios, which she helps to organize each year.

    Over the years, Prairie, 70, has taught kelp-weaving classes from her home.
