From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He studied in the Dublin Society's Schools, and in early life was patronized by the Earl of Bristol, Bishop of Derry, who took him to Italy. On his return he practised as a miniature painter in Dublin, but marrying a rich widow he took up his residence in Belfast towards the end of the eighteenth century and eventually retired from his profession.
