Working between London and Edinburgh from 1886, the painter exhibited at the Glasgow Institute, in Liverpool, and at the Royal Scottish Academy.
He is mentioned as one of the 'greats' of the old days, along with Stanhope FORBES, Thomas Cooper GOTCH and Henry Scott TUKE, in the Cornish Review by Charles MARRIOTT. Whybrow notices an artist of the same name as a member at STIAC after 1921, but it is unlikely to be the same artist.
