Born on the 17th September 1892 in Preston, Lancashire. He
specialised in painting portraits, landscapes and marines on oil,
watercolour and pastel and was an accomplished etcher and teacher at the
Pembroke Lodge School and Wimborne Grammar School. He studied at the
St. John’s Wood School of Art before being accepted at the Royal Academy
Schools. In 1913 he is recorded as living at Bournemouth, then
Parkstone, Dorset in 1915 before finally settling in Poole for many
years. He served as a cadet in Mercantile Marine serving for them on the
West African trade route, before taking up art. It was then that he
made several voyages on the barquentine ‘Waterwitch’ carrying coal and
china clay from Cornish ports. The ‘Waterwitch’ was the last trading
square rigger in British service at that time. He became an Associate of
the Royal West of England Academy and exhibited there and widely
elsewhere, mostly portraits. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in
1913 a work titled ‘Iris’ and went on to exhibit fourteen works there.
