He studied from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Lejona, where he earned a degree in graphic design in 1988.
From 1989 to 2004 he worked as a graphic designer with minor incursions into the fields of photography and synthetic imagery, teaching also at the Irun Municipal Academy of Painting and Drawing from 1997 to 2001.
In 2006 he turned his attention exclusively to painting, working mainly in a kind of meticulous realist style, studying the effects of light on the human body.
