He exhibited at the Society of Marine Artists, The Royal Exchange, London, The Guildhall, London and The Royal Academy.

South Australian was built by William Pile, Sunderland in 1868. For nearly two decades she voyaged annually between London and South Australia. After being sold in 1887 she operated out of Belfast carrying cargo to India and New Brunswick. She sank in the Bristol Channel in 1889, with the loss of one crew member, when her load of iron railway rails shifted and holed her below the waterline.
