Sandra Kirkland


Sandra moved to Oaxaca in 2007, retiring from a brief career as a marketing copywriter for a Pulitzer Prize winning newspaper. Most of her life has been spent in advertising, marketing and promotion, so it was a perfect fit for her to jump in to help FOFA with promoting the first exhibition at the MEAPO of the winning works of artesanía in the 2008 young artists’ competition. It was Sandra’s suggestion to add the tianguis, outdoor art sale, to the opening of the exhibit, since the goal of FOFA is to show young artesanos that they can earn a livelihood with their crafts. It was all extremely successful, leading to additional tianguis to accompany the duration of the exhibition in 2008-9.
