This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, he became a landscape and still-life painter in the traditionalist school. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Art Students League of New York, and the Barnes Foundation in Marion, Pennsylvania. His teachers were John Carlson, Eugene Speicher, and Andrew Dasburg.

Earlier he attended the University of Chicago School of Business but did not enjoy it and also worked in his father's candy factory, one of the largest in the Midwest. But his love was drawing and painting, and his father then paid his tuition at the above mentioned art schools.

He and his wife traveled widely in Europe and in the 1930s, settled in Pasadena, California where he was a member of the Pasadena Society of Artists and served as President of the Pasadena Fine Arts Association. He died at age 59 just after finishing a painting. A memorial exhibition of his work was held at the Joslyn Memorial Museum in Omaha in the fall of 1948.
