Born in Lancashire, he studied in Paris under M M BOLLINGER, COLLIN and COURTOIS. An artist whose address was in St Ives before 1890, he exhibited two paintings at the Dowdeswell Exhibition. A good friend, with whom he first came to Cornwall, was Algernon Mayow TALMAGE. His main successes were in exhibiting at the RA (25) over many years, but he also showed work in many provincial exhibitions.
The 1891 Census records him as an Artist Painter, from Eccles, boarding at Tregenna Place, St Ives. He also served on the first Committee of the St Ives Arts Club.
