This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Campbell, CA on April 11, 1894 of English parents. In his early teens Burns moved with his family to San Rafael, CA and remained a resident of Marin County for the rest of his life. Art studies were at the CSFA where he was greatly influenced by Frank Van Sloun, and while there was awarded a scholarship for further study at AIC. Burns was a cofounder of Marin Society of Artists in 1927 and served as their president during its early years. An Impressionist, he made many sketching trips throughout northern California, particularly Lake Tahoe, Carmel, and Yosemite; however, most of his subject matter was drawn from the area around his home in Marin County. Burns died at his home in Kentfield on Sept. 6, 1959. Exh: Marin Co. Fair, 1928; Calif. State Fairs; Oakland Art Gallery, 1939.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Campbell, California of English parents, he became an impressionist painter of California landscapes. He moved with his family to San Rafael and stayed in Marin County the remainder of his life. He studied at the California School of Fine Arts, and a highly influential teacher was Frank Van Sloun. He earned a scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago.

In 1927, he co-founded the Marin Society of Artists and served as president during its early years. He did much painting in Northern California, especially Lake Tahoe, Carmel and Yosemite, but most of his landscapes were subjects near his home in Marin County. We was primarily an oil painter but worked in all media.
