From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

An artist painting in Cork at the beginning of the nineteenth century. He exhibited a "View near Rathfarnham" with the Society of Artists in Dublin in 1812, and two Dublin views with the Hibernian Society in 1815. There is an aquatint by him of "Parliament Bridge, Cork," published in 1807. In or after 1815 he appears to have gone to England, and in that year published four of his own drawings of "the Interior of Tintern Abbey" and a book, "Lessons on Landscape colouring, shadowing and pencilling." In 1822 he issued a series of lithographs, "The Forest Illustrated," and in 1830 thirty-nine plates of "Picturesque Views in Staffordshire and Shropshire." He also contributed some papers to the "Archaeological Journal."
