He studied painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts from where he graduated in 1956, while at the same time taking lessons from Spyros Papaloukas. He taught freehand drawing at the Athens Technological Institute (1960-1968) and at his own Workshop of Free Painting Studies (1969-1972). In 1982 he was elected a full professor to the Chair of Painting at the Athens School of Fine Arts, where he remained till his retirement in 1988. He had solo shows in Athenian galleries (Zygos 1963, The Hilton 1973, Nees Morfes 1973, Desmos 1979, Ora 1984) and took part in many group exhibitions in Greece and abroad (Panhellenies 1957, 1960, 1963, 1965, Youth Biennale, Paris 1961, Alexandria Biennale 1963 and others).

After his early works, which adhered more or less to abstract expressionism, he turned to figurative painting, creating surrealistic paintings with human figures and objects, while still later he was also involved with landscapes.
