He was President of the Victorian Art Society (1923-24). In 1929 he came to Queensland, and in 1935 received the Godfrey Rivers Bequest Award. Haysom wrote art critiques for the Brisbane Observer. His painting career was interrupted by Army Service (1940-44). 1948 he was employed as an instructor in painting at the Brisbane Central Technical College.
