White was born in South Boston and was sketching from the age of 11 years old. He was a self-taught artist who idolized Winslow Homer. He spent a great deal of time at the Boston Art Museum and other museums where he elicited private viewings of Homer's paintings. He became well known as a Hingham and South Shore artist. He painted as a hobby and donated several paintings to a church auction to help raise funds for his church. He is known for painting outdoor scenes and had several local exhibits to his credit.
