Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He entered the Dublin Society's School in 1764 and won a prize in 1768 for architectural drawings. He was afterwards a pupil of Richard Cranfield, carver, and as such exhibited architectural drawings at the Society of Artists in William Street in 1770. He became a portrait painter, and was an imitator of H. D. Hamilton, doing portraits in crayons in his style.
