Sally Lackaff - A diurnal omnivore, Sally Lackaff is an agrarian mammal with opposable thumbs and hunter-gatherer tendencies. She loves bones, stones, birds, and minutiae.

Born to quietly unique artist parents in the 1970's art colony of Cannon Beach, S. Lackaff forewent the discipline of formal art school teachings and made her own way into the art world. For ten years she was Artistic Editor of the left-wing rag Upper Left Edge, honing her skills at line drawing and other illustration. In 1998 her hand-lettered-and-illustrated book Wildlife on the Edge was published, and upon moving to Astoria, she has further developed into the worlds of graphical hand-executed arts, as well as detailed oils, carved signage, and found-object mobiles.

"Hello - In 1964-65, I taught at Portland State University. We used to visit Cannon Beach frequently and particularly liked to drop by a gallery that had Frank Lackaff paintings. In fact, I believe it was his gallery and we used to talk to him. I loved a particular painting of a mountain shrouded in fog and spoke of it often. My wife and my mom (who lived in Portland also) gave it to me for my birthday. It is now hanging on the wall to the right of me. It was painted on burlap and the frame is rough lumber weathered to look driftwood-like. When we left Portland in 1965 he was painting much larger paintings that were (if you made the connection) enlarged seashore pebbles seen through the water.
I also remember later visiting my mother and saw sculptures on the PSC (now PSU) library of nature-scapes that I also believe were Lackaff's. At any rate, I have been trying to track him down and recently Googled him which led to you.
Do you know how I can contact him or learn of his career? I believe you must be his daughter. Your "the blue flower," at any rate, looks very similar to the "pebble paintings."
Sincerely, Sam McNaughton (Syracuse NY)."
