After education at Downside School, he trained at Brighton School of Art and then worked as a manager at his father's photographic business before becoming a full-time artist. He was close to Francis Barraud and helped him with the final version of "His Master's Voice".
His work covers landscapes in Suffolk, Essex, Kent, the Thames Estuary and Rye. He also painted and etched:
- London street-scenes,
- popular destinations close to the LNER to be used as carriage prints,
- industrial buildings (notably interiors of Dunston Power Station),
- Christmas Cards.
During the First World War he served with The Artists' Rifles and was commissioned in the The Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders of Canada (43 Battalion) and, after being wounded in the left leg, was posted to the Canadian War Office as an official war artist.
He was married twice, first to Gladys Seanor (two children) and, after her death, to Evelyn Dixon.
