He studied art at the École des Arts Appliqués (School of Applied Arts) in Paris, and began exhibiting wherever he could to gain experience and hopefully recognition for his work.

He also exhibited in other major salons and in other cities in and around France such as; Trouville, Deauville, and Montmorency, winning prizes and various distinctions wherever he went.
Since 1963, he began winning one or more awards and ‘honorable mentions’ every year for his work, which was a remarkable achievement for any artist at that time. A few of the many awards include; an honorable mention (1966), the Prix sue Conseil General de la Seine, the Prix Schaeffer, 1st prize of the French Landscape Artists (circa 1967), and the landscape prize in Deauville-Trouville. His works can be found in the City of Paris Museum Collection, along with other provincial museums, various galleries and in many private collections worldwide.
