He started a career as an engineer but soon decided to become a painter.In 1922, he moved to Arles, where he was trained as a painter and set up a studio. He painted frescoes in the city halls of Saint-Martin-de-Crau and Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. He also painted frescoes in the Museon Arlaten and in the dining hall of the Collège Ampère, both of which are in Arles. He also designed windows inside the Église Saint-Louis in Marseille.
