One of the first Russian enamellists. Artist of the Armoury. During the 1710s he painted banners and church items. In the middle of 1724 he was summoned to Petersburg to work as an enamellist at the Cabinet of Peter the Great; subsequently, he would also work for the College of Foreign Affairs. He decorated enamels both with portraits, and religious subjects. At the moment, we are aware of eleven signed works of the artist.
