Returning to Wales he opened a studio in Llanelly, where he was assisted by funding from a number of patrons; Mrs. Gwynne Hughes (Tregŷb), Lord Dynevor, Lord Emlyn, D. Pugh MP, and Mansel Lewis. The works he produced include painted landscapes and portraits, illustrations, and caricatures.After four years in Llanelly he moved to London, where for a time he worked for 'The Graphic', before returning again to Wales, to open a new studio in Llandilo.During the second of the Boer Wars (1899) he was posted to the 'Lord Roberts Horse Brigade', and worked as a free-lance artist and journalist. He is thought to have remained in South Africa until his death (date unknown), and to have continued painting, producing late works such as 'African Sunset’, as shown at the 1924 Wembley 'Empire Exhibition'.
