A distinguished portrait painter, his work covered many fields including a number of stained glass windows for churches in Warwickshire. He is better known in Brighton where he redecorated the panels in the Banqueting Hall in the Royal Pavilion. His work was exhibited in both the Great Exhibition of 1851 and the Paris Expo of 1867.
