Joseph Charles Parker graduated from the Manhattan School of Aviation Trades before entering the Navy. After his discharge from the military, he worked on a cattle ranch in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, as well as designing window displays in the late-1940s for Franklin Simon on 5th Avenue in New York City. As a part of the G.I. Bill, Parker traveled to Paris and studied graphic design with Fernand Leger and Paul Colin. When he returned to the United States in 1951, he opened a commercial art firm called Glanzman-Parker Studio in New York. In 1969, he left the city with his family to relocate to Hadley, New York, where he would devote himself full-time to sculpture.
