He was in Jaen in 1618, when he took over the golden altarpiece of San Anton in the church of San Juan, and 1619, in which he was hired for an altarpiece in Campillo de Arenas.In 1627 he was established in Priego, where he contracted the altarpieces of St. Peter and Our Lady of the Rosary in the parish church, and these are the oldest surviving works of his in Córdoba.
