He is believed to be an autodidact. Published his own plates. Lived in Amsterdam in the time of Van Ruysdaal, Safltleven and other important masters. His etching contains motifs he observed in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy. He created 136 etchings and built an important reputation. This etching has to date from around 1650, during the highlight of the realistic landscape sets in the Netherlands. The picture is made in etching technique but it is known that Waterloo updated details with the burin.
