This little-known artist was born in Falmouth, and at the time of the 1891 Census he was a 30 year old unmarried Artist Painter Sculptor, living with his sister Emily and her son Cecil at 8 Belgravia Street, Penzance. He is also known to have lived at some point at Etaples, France.
At least twelve of his works are part of the permanent collection of the Falmouth Art Gallery, and the landscapes without exception depict rural scenes around Falmouth, the boatyard, Penmare Hill, and Prislow. Still life with flowers and fruit are also represented.
