Donal Jolley

Art has always been an integral part of Donal Jolley’s life. The son of a nationally recognized artist, he grew up to the familiar scents of the studio and in the company of accomplished contemporary artists. His introduction to the art world was not in a classroom with facts and tutorials, but with the molding of the heart of an artist.

Donal is a self-taught artist. A fourteen-year career in fine commercial printing saw him working with wellknown designers, and he often found himself teaching them how to get from concept to ink on paper when technical issues required advanced training.

When Apple revolutionized the print world, Donal’s life was changed as well. After learning the basics of Photoshop 2 and other design applications, he changed
his career path to digital art and design. He was certified to teach digital design at the college level in the state of California, and spent several years teaching Photoshop and Illustrator to students and professionals alike.

Donal is also a cartoonist and spends a lot of time working with children. His true passion is volunteering his time and talents with the Children’s Hospital of Atlanta where he interacts with patients and their families as they endure the stress involved with illnesses and injuries.

Donal lives in Johns Creek, Georgia with his wife and children. Watson, his African Grey parrot, is his constant studio companion and Wacom pen destroyer.
