English painter, active in the American colonies. He first appeared
in Bermuda in August 1752, and in a matter of months he painted many
of the islandís leading families. Approximately 25 of these
portraits (e.g. Mrs John Harvey, Paget, Bermuda, priv. col.)
survive; these demonstrate considerable skill in the painting of
lace and other details of dress. Because of these abilities, it is
thought he probably began his career in one of the larger studios in
London as a drapery specialist.
