He studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts (1957-1962) under Yannis Moralis and engraving under Kostas Grammatopoulos. In 1966, on a scholarship from the State Scholarship Service, he went to Paris where he studied fresco and mosaic at the School of Fine Arts until 1969. Returning to Greece he taught drawing and color for many years at private schools, while at the same time involving himself with set design and book illustration.

He began to exhibit in 1960 and this activity now includes both solo presentations and appearances in Panhellenies and group exhibitions of painting and engraving in Greece and abroad.

His work, characterized by a personal style in which are combined elements of figurative and abstract painting, includes compositions of a surrealist character in which color plays an important role, contributing to the creation of a poetic and dream-like atmosphere.
