In 1852 he exhibited at the National Academy of Design and was elected to the New York Sketch Club, thus affiliating himself with the Hudson River School of landscape painting. By 1855, he had accepted a teaching position at Greensboro College in North Carolina. He discovered in western North Carolina a wilderness as wild as anything he had seen in NY state and proceeded to capture the scenery around the Blue Ridge Mountains and the French Broad River.
