Lives a quiet life, surrounded by olive trees and his artwork, spending time between Croatia, Israel and India..
For over three decades, stone – from Brač stone to gemstone – and precious metals have been the fundamentals he keeps coming back to, along with researching other materials.
He developed his skills at the Masonry School in Pučišća, the island of Brač, the School of Gemmology in Amsterdam, as well as through several years of experience working with master goldsmiths in Split, Amsterdam and Jaipur. For many years, he worked with wards of the Split Education Centre Juraj Bonači, where he established an award-winning masonry therapeutic workshop for persons with special needs, receiving a special award for his mosaic work.
Among other things, he set up a series of solo jewellery exhibitions, enriched the Kathmandu cathedral by placing a cross made of Brač stone featuring Croatian braiding in it, a rosary he had made of Međugorje stone was given to Pope John Paul II, and he restored numerous sacral objects and buildings throughout Croatia, India and Nepal.
