Sally Lackaff, a native of Clatsop County, is a self-taught illustrator and author. A childhood spent traveling Europe and an endless fascination with Nature helped shape her sensibilities. Since age 18, Lackaff has built an enjoyable, if delicately balanced, career around art and gardening. Some highlights include illustrating over ten books, designing logos and painting signs for businesses from Manzanita to Astoria, filling prominent restrooms with murals, and writing and illustrating interpretive signage. She lives in Astoria with her artist/musician husband, Roger Hayes. Lackaff was granted an extension to her Fall-Winter a-i-r tenure so that she might have the time, space and solitude needed to complete two substantial book-illustration projects.
