He had his first drawing lessons at the Gewerbeschule (vocational school) in Basel, before he became an apprentice of a stone engraver and then of sculptor Wilhelm Meier. He continued his drawing and sculpturing studies, e.g. at the School of Arts and Crafts in MÃ¼nchen. In the late 1920s, he spent most of his time abroad, in Germany, Italy, France and Greece. Eventually, he was employed as a teacher at the stone and sculpturing vocational school in St. Gallen. He created mostly religious sculptures, portrait busts, nudes and grave characters, but also medals and plaques. His paintings were characterized by landscapes, urban scenes, still lifes and interiors.
