The artist was born in Manchester and studied at the Blackburn, Bury and Accrington Schools of Art before attending the Royal College of Art under William Rothenstein and R Anning Bell. He served on the teaching staff of Eastbourne Art School (1921-5) and the Cambridge School of Art (1925-9). He became the Principal of the Storey Institute, Lancaster, a centre for the arts and education (today a creative industries hub continuing its original mission in a modern way). As such, he served on the Committee of the Lancaster and District Sketch Club from its beginnings.
Though his subjects include painting(s) in Cornwall, it is not known if he exhibited here.
