Sarah Sanford b. 1974 in Michigan is an artist printmaker who has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally. She holds a Masters of Fine Art in Printmaking from the Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland (2003) and a Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education from Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland, OH (1996).

Her work combines drawing, printmaking, photography and installation to create art that explores internal structural systems. "I am intrigued by the scientific process in which intense investigation of minute subunits is integral to understanding the whole picture." Transitioning between macro- and microcosmic worlds, she uses the contrast between darkness and light to create abstractions of space reminiscent of both natural and human landscapes.

Sanford has given lectures and workshops at several institutions including the Academy of Art University, San Francisco; Indiana University, Bloomington, IN; Edinburgh Printmakers, Scotland; The Edinburgh Academy and the Taigh-Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre, North Uist, Scotland. She served as an adjunct faculty member at the Herron School of Art and Design from 2006-08. She now lives in Santa Cruz, CA and is a visiting lecturer at University of California, Santa Cruz and is a member of the California Society of Printmakers and the Los Angeles Printmaking Society.
