A landscape and figure painter who worked in Bath from 1833 to 1838, and was Secretary of the Bath Society of Arts. He also lived in London where he exhibited from 1828 to 1843, and between 1851 to 1855 he was Drawing Master at King's College in succession to M.E. Cotman.

An important historical and topographical of Plymouth and the surrounding area from the early Victorian era.
