He studied both architecture and sculpture, but after his meeting with Laurens, which affected him deeply, he abandonned his work as an architect to devote himself entirely to sculpture and metalwork. In 1960, he discovered synthetic materials, which were to become, from that moment on, the element through which he most naturally expressed himself. As a creator of jewellery, he produced a series of erotic pieces that created a certain impact. He has been exhibiting his work since 1962, and has participated in many Salons.
