He was a graduate of the Athens Law University in 1902. He studied at the School of Fine Arts under G. Iakovidis, G. Roilos, D. Geraniotis and S. Vikatos and graduated in 1908. He continued his studies from 1911 to 1914 at the Academie Julian in Paris under J. P. Laurens and then at the Grand Chaumiere. He worked on portraits, landscapes, sea-subjects and compositions de picting human labor.
