The artist was born in Sheffield, and studied at the Royal College of Art. He exhibited silver works from the first craft show at NAG in December 1924 to 1937, and was elected to membership of the Newlyn Society of Artists (NSA) in 1935.
At NAG in 1926 he exhibited hand-wrought silver, and in the summer show of 1929 he showed a replica of a claret jug and a beaten silver 'Pilgrimage Girdle'.
