Shannon O’Neill Creighton


Shannon O’Neill Creighton is a visual artist and writer working as a high school photography teacher and freelance visual artist in West Sonoma County.

Her interest in the photographic arts began at age ten with her exposure to black and white 35mm photography, rolling her own film, and developing images in the glow of the red light. Shannon grew up in West Marin, an hour northwest of San Francisco.

From early on, she developed and challenged herself by intimately engaging with the land around her, often with camera in hand. This lifelong relationship with nature continues to serve as a primary shaping force in Shannon’s life and artwork.

Shannon received her MFA from California Institute of Integral Studies in April 2018 in Creative Inquiry, with a focus on 4×5 photography and text & image.
