From 1912 - 1914 he lived and exhibited his paintings in Winnipeg.

He exhibited two watercolours in the 1928 Provincial Exhibition in New Westminster. The exhibition catalogue noted that he was a resident of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

He exhibited an oil painting and a sculpture in the 1932 All Canadian Exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
