Already at a young age he worked as a potter in his birthregion
In 1976 het went to Amsterdam to study ceramics under Jan van der Vaart at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. After his studies he established himself as a ceramist in Amsterdam
After 5 succesfull years he started to experiment with other materials, in the beginning in combination with clay.
He made large metal sculptures- somtimes hollow volumes, somtimes abstract forms cut out of thick plate and assembled
Some of them were made on commission and can be seen in public spaces
Since 2010 he also makes assamblages from different watse materials, always assembled with metal threads - these works belong to the so called "recycling art".
His most recent works are pure studies in matter and colours as the essence of the artwork.He works intuitively with laquer and colour to create his geomatrical reliefs
