Educated in his native Ryde on the Isle of Wight and Finsbury Park College, London, the artist lived and worked with his wife and fellow-artist Lionel Lea Townley BIRCH (nee Butchart) in Liverpool.  Whybrow notices this couple in St Ives in her artists' colony list of 1911-20. Nothing further has been found as yet related to Cornwall.
