His father was an artillery sergeant major in Antwerp. He was educated at the Antwerp Academy of Arts, studied with the sculptor Joseph Gefs and in the workshop of Emmanuel Noterman, an artist and engraver. He also studied under the renowned marine artist Jacob Jacobs . He was engaged in painting outdoors. He depicted mostly flat areas with distant horizons, extremely faithfully conveying nature and, at the same time, subtly expressing the mood excited by nature. His best paintings are recognized by art criticism: “View in the vicinity of Spa”, “View near Edegem” (in the Brussels Museum), “Morning in the Ardennes”, “The Twilight Effect”, “First Autumn Day” and some others.
In addition to painting, he was engaged in engraving and published in London a collection of his 24 etchings .
