Alysha Creighton is an intermedia artist based in Vancouver, BC. She holds a BA in Visual Art from Trinity Western University and an MFA in Drawing and Intermedia from the University of Alberta.

Recent projects include her site-specific project Waiting Room at the Bleeding Heart Art Space, her solo exhibition Proximities at the Art Gallery of St. Albert, and a video installation as part of the 2013 Alberta Biennial. She has taught drawing and intermedia courses at the University of Alberta for the past four years. She has also served as the Artist in Residence at the Glenrose Rehabilitation hospital and as a lead artist at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts where she assisted artists with developmental disabilities in bringing their ideas to life through digital animation.
