A London-based painter who lectured at RCPS Falmouth, having exhibited and taught (1825) at RA, BI, SS, and NWS.
According to the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society Annual Report (1842): 'The influence of the Society is difficult to measure, as it frequently admits, but the 1842 exhibition was judged superior to any previous one. That year J M Burbank gave a very detailed lecture on water colour painting, specifying such basic requirements as an HB pencil, 2/3 thicknesses of paper, 2 basins of perfectly clean water and much else in similarly fascinating vein.'
