Son of a woollen merchant from Huddersfield, Yorkshire, he became an art student in London where he subsequently married. He was an official war artist to the Royal Army Medical Corps during the First World War. He painted scenes of rehabilitation in the Queens Hospital for Facial Injuries at Frognall, Sidcup, and of wonded soldiers arriving at Charing Cross Station in London. When not doing war work he seems to have specialized in landscapes. We have seen mentions of a number of these, but have not found images of them. A painting of his called Harvest was praised in The New Age for July 28th 1910 (Vol. 7, p. 307).
