He exhibited widely in his lifetime, including at the Fine Art Society. He was reclusive, working entirely from a home studio where he cultivated many of the plant specimens he painted. His work can be found in the Shirley Sherwood Gallery at Kew; The Fitzwilliam Museum (Cambridge) and Leeds Art Gallery; The Ulster Museum (Belfast) and the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation (Pittsburgh) and in private collections.
