From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was a pupil of West and Mannin in the Dublin Society's Schools, and afterwards practised in Dublin as a painter of flowers, portraits and miniatures. He was given a premium by the Dublin Society in 1761. From his address in Castle Street he sent twelve works to the exhibition of the Society of Artists in William Street in 1769; and in 1771, being then resident in New Street, he contributed miniatures. He was much employed as a teacher in Dublin. In 1788 he was teaching drawing and painting in a school at Portarlington. Nothing further is known of him.
