(Born 1941) Sari’s art training took place at the El Camino College, at UCLA and at Otis Parsons Art Institute.
Upon receiving recognition from both the Downey Art Museum and the Los Angeles All City Art Festival, this California watercolorist’s professional career was launched in 1967. Southwest Art (September 1988) focused on Stagg’s work, as did Rendezvous and LA Style magazines. Newspapers covering her work include the Jackson Hole News, Idaho Mountain Express and the Los Angeles Times.
Currently Staggs works out of a loft in downtown Los Angeles. Kneeland Gallery in Ketchum, Idaho and the Center Street Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming both carry her paintings on a regular basis. Some of you may remember seeing her work twenty five years ago at the Suzanne Brown Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona. Legions of posters by Staggs were quite the rage during the 1980’s. These depicted Native American and Western figures.
It is fun to note that celebrities owning Staggs paintings include: Buddy and Sherry Hackett, Cher, Dick Martin, Alan King, Connie Stevens, Keifer Sutherland.
