According to Houbraken he was a very good landscape painter, and he decorated these landscapes with various figures and animals in such an ingenious way that he became quite popular. After the siege of Antwerp, his family moved to Middelburg, where he was probably educated. He returned to Antwerp in 1609 where he was later called to the British court. He spent 10 months in England where he painted two landscape views of Greenwich.
His paintings today hang in various museums where he worked and lived, such as London, Antwerp, and Middelburg. He was influenced by the Breughel family, especially Jan Brueghel the Elder and Jan Brueghel the Younger. According to Houbraken he was still painting at age 80.
