Vancouver born Donald Jarvis began studying at the Vancouver School of Art in 1941 under B.C. Binning and Jack Shadbolt. He was a recipient of the Emily Carr scholarship, and upon graduating in 1948 went to study with Hans Hoffman in New York on the advice of Lawren Harris. He returned to Vancouver in 1950 where a solo show of his work was held at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The National Gallery acquired two of his canvases that year. In 1951 he was hired as an instructor of drawing and painting at the Vancouver School of Art, and in 1961 was appointed head of the department where he remained for 36 years.
