Born in America although he moved to the UK at a young age,[1] Donald Short is a Dorset-based artist who specialises in blue print techniques to create attractive, unique and original 'Blue Print' artwork.[2] He has previously been a teacher of Art at Magdalen College School, Oxford, where his students have said they "loved his teaching and how involved he was with their work" (M. Tash, 2015)[3] and he developed his famous catchphrase "You've chosen a referral!".[citation needed]


Short has had many exhibitions over his time as an artist showcasing his unique Blue Print designs.
