The artist studied in Antwerp and Paris, and lived and painted from Balham (1889-93) and Warwick Square, London (1902). Illustrations of his work appear in The Studio magazine, and he is included in New Zealand Gallery (Wellington and Christchurch) Collections.
In 1893, his signature appears on an Arts Club letter, the same year as the Canadian artist Mary Alexander BELL, whom he subsequently married, came to St Ives. Tovey remarks that it is not surprising that St Ives was as much a 'seedbed of romance' as a welling up of artistic friendships.
