Glynn was founder and president of a successful graphics company, Glynn Palmer Associates, Inc, before devoting himself solely to his art in 1982 at the age of 30, working in ceramics as well as painting and sculpture. He is also the founder of “Wings Over Haiti,” an umbrella organization that began when Glynn, a licensed pilot, flew supplies into Haiti after the catastrophic earthquake in January 2010.
