I graduated from the University of Rijeka, Faculty of Pedagogy in 1990 (Painting Department) as an art professor. Still as a student I participated in exhibitions in Slovenia and Croatia. I became a member of the Croatian Artists Society of Rijeka HDLU-Rijeka. From 1991 I continued my artistic endeavours for the next 22 years in Sweden and had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Sweden, Croatia, Germany, Austria, Italy, and the USA. As a professor of art I lectured in various schools, teaching the art of drawing and painting. In 1997 I began a sixteen-year career at the Sanda High School in Jonkoping and continued teaching arts including design, photo art, and digital image processing. Due to my long-standing work I was invited to appear in several art judgement panels. I was a member of the Swedish Artists National Organisation KRO and the International Association of Art IAA (AIAP). In 2013, I returned to my hometown Lovran.
