He took his first lessons from the icon painter G. Kazakos, and Panos Sarafianos. He then studied at the Athens School of Fine Arts, initially in the Thanasis Apartis sculpture workshop and then under Yannis Moralis. With a grant from the State Scholarship Service he also studied set design and decoration. During the period from 1967 to 1973 he travelled to various European countries visiting the museums and acquainting himself with the modern art scene.

His exhibitions include both solo and group shows of painting and engraving, in Greece and abroad.

In the context of his broader artistic activity, he has also been involved with the editing of various publications. Moreover, he was a founding member of the Engraving Group.

Involved both with painting and engraving, he has made the human figure his center of interest, the female figure in particular, which monumental and corpulent, whether whole or fragmentary, dominate his compositions which combine echoes of cubism, expressionism and surrealism and are rendered in a special style all his own.
