Donald Fortescue is a Professor of Art and Design at the California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco. He was born in Sydney, Australia, where he studied zoology and botany for his first degree, and worked as a botanical consultant and scientific illustrator for many years. His love of making lead him to further studies in design at the Australian National University and then to a Master’s degree in Sculpture. He moved to the US in 1997 to head the Furniture Design program at CCA. He has exhibited in Australia, the US, Europe, Asia and South America. He received the Experimental Design Award from San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art in 2001 and his work is in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Australia, the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, the Museum of Art and Design in New York, the Houston Museum of Fine Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. His most recent solo exhibition "Pareidolia" was at Vessel Gallery in Oakland in 2014.

"I use contemporary digital technologies such as image manipulation software, 3D scanning and digital printing, video and sound, combined with more traditional hand-making and compare the inherent qualities or ‘artifacts’ of these processes with natural processes of emergent complexity and pattern formation."  –Donald Fortescue
