In 1791 he applied for permission to go to India and was refused but arrived there anyway. He married and moved in to the same house, in Madras, as was occupied by John Smart, from where he advertised himself as a miniature painter. He worked in watercolour and ‘en grisaille’ with dark backgrounds. These profiles were sometimes signed. His work is similar to that of John Smart whose style he imitated. He died at Patna in 1807.
His portraits show a greenish shading on the face, the cheeks and mouth being a rather vivid red.
