Sandra’s history in art began from the time she was born, in a small town Minnesota antique schoolhouse. Her parents are the celebrated pottery makers Joe and Eunice Messer of CERAMICS BY MESSER in Bowman North Dakota. During her years growing up, along with her brother Dave, Sandra was introduced to many art mediums and interesting hobbies along the way, with her mom and dad’s encouragement and endless support.
Every one of her self-taught interests and art forms she immersed herself in completely, moving from one to the other and back again, finding skills from each, to enhance the latest project. Everything from dog grooming, exhibiting and breeding, to antique reproduction miniature doll making, raising exotic exhibition betta and fancy guppy fish to glass fusing, watercolor and silk painting, batik, sculpting and jewelry design….the journey of artistic adventures continues today!
