He studied painting at the Paris School of Fine Arts (1956-1962). After the completion of his studies he remained in the French capital and from 1976 to 1988 taught lithography at the same school. In 1988 he returned to Greece where he lives and works.

In 1966 he had his first solo show at the Astor gallery in Athens, and then organized other solo shows in both Greece and abroad. He also took part in Parisian Salons, as well as group and international exhibitions of painting and engraving.

In his work he presents a world which combines elements of the familiar and the everyday with an otherworldly, dreamy and, frequently, erotic atmosphere, in which the female figure dominates. Nude in most instances and often reclining, alone or with a man, she is rendered without any trace of realism, in strong colors and with a plasticity of volumes and is shown in bourgeois interiors with elements from the past. Along with his painting he is occupied with engraving, lithography in particular, creating compositions with a strong expressionistic character.
