Jolley's father, Donal Jones Jolley, was the first chief ranger for Zion National Park. Donal Jones Jolley (Donal is a family name) started working in Zion in 1919, finally leaving Zion in 1943 when the park service moved him to Lake Meade National Recreation Center.

During his career as an artist, Jolley has painted hundreds of images of the Southwest, ranging from detailed acrylics or oils of historic trains and cowboys and Indians to abstract watercolors of landscapes, farms and barns.
...
On display in his studio for visitors to see (and maybe to purchase) are both framed and unframed paintings and watercolors, although Jolley now mostly works in watercolors. Visitors are welcome to stop by, but should call first. He has been painting full time in his home-studio in Rimforest since 1970.
Now 80 years old, Jolley attended Brigham Young University where he graduated as an art major. A brief time serving in the Army took him to Germany in the 1950s. Returning to civilian life, he found a job as an illustrator for the Aerospace Corporation in El Segundo, California and freelanced for Rod & Custom magazine. His interest in art originally was piqued by a high school art teacher who favored working in watercolor and pastels.
...
Jolley's met many artists who shared similar passions about the Southwest, including Native Americans.
"I remember meeting a Navajo artist one time around Canyon de Chelly (National Monument)," he recalled. "We talked, but I wished I could have had more time with him. Looking back, Jolley said he would have liked to have learned more about the artist's feelings for the country. Other favorite places for Jolley include the area around Monument Valley between Arizona and Utah, and its pinnacles of rock, surrounded by mesas and buttes, and the Virgin River and its tributaries.
Jolley's credentials as a Southwestern artist are lengthy. He is a member of the National Watercolor Society and Watercolor West. He has been featured in Southwest Art, Contemporary Western Artists, Who's Who in American Art, Camera Life, Inland Empire Magazine and others. His work is in the collections of the Church Museum of History and Art in Salt Lake City, the San Bernardino County Museum, and the Smithsonian.
"Life has been very good to me," he added.

Donald C. Jolley was born in Zion National Park, Utah. He has lived in Boulder City, and Carson City, Nevada. Jolley graduated from Brigham Young University in 1959. He worked as an illustrator for the U.S. Army in Germany and with the Aerospace Corporation in El Segundo and San Bernardino, California. He has been painting full time in his home-studio in Rim Forrest in the San Bernardino mountains of Southern California since 1970. Jolley deals with environmental experiences that are sometimes representational, sometimes abstract elements, all this very much a part of the open spaces and isolation of western America. His paintings have received many local and national awards; including the 1981 National Watercolor Society "Member's Cash Award" exhibit in the Palm Springs Desert Museum and the Tuscon Art Museum. Donal has been a featured artist in SOUTHWEST ART magazine in March 1980 and Camera Life in May 1980. Jolley is a member of the National Watercolor Society, a past Vice-President of Watercolor West, board member of the San Bernardino Fine Arts Institute, member of the Whiskey Painters of America and is listed in Who's Who of American Art and Artists of Renown.

REDLANDS, CALIF. -- Donal Jolley's penchant for painting Southwestern scenes spawned from his early experiences as a youth having spent his first 10 years growing up in Zion National Park in Utah. On Friday March 30, Jolley will be one of five artists featured in the Redlands Community Hospital Foundation and Art's Annual "Evening with the Artists of RCH" event.
Jolley, who earned his art degree at Brigham Young University's art program, is an award-winning artist from Rimforest, California who is renowned for his dramatic and detail-oriented paintings and looks forward to participating in the yearly event.
"I've been very supportive of Redlands Community Hospital for a very long time," Jolley said. "I have nothing but respect and admiration for the staff and the organization."
Jolley is no stranger to the Redland's event and was one of the featured artists in 2009's "Evening with the Artists. He is very appreciative of the support he and his fellow artists receive from Redlands Hospital and is proud of the hospital's desire to display local talent on their walls.
"The 'Evening with the Artists' event is terrific," Jolley said. "I've been involved for a few years and am proud to have had some of my paintings in some of the shows."
Jolley, a former Aerospace Corporation illustrator, is the former vice president of the Watercolor West and National Watercolor Society. He hasearned numerous awards and has been featured in Southwest Art, Inland Empire Magazine and other publications but stays humble when discussing his accolades.
"Everyone likes to talk about honors or wants to win a prize," he lamented. "But winning awards is not the reason why I paint."
Although he may be reluctant to speak about his awards, his work speaks for itself as collections of his pieces hang in the Church Museum of History and Art in Salt Lake City, the San Bernardino County Museum, and the Smithsonian.
Jolley joins local artists Paul Strahm, Patricia Ford, Ginger Peña, alongside the works of Jean Cranmer (presented by Kimberley Shirk Assoc.) at the annual "Evening of the Artists" event this spring.
