Feuchtmayer was born in Wessobrunn Abbey. A sculptor and stuccoist, he (along with his brother Johann Michael) was responsible for the choir stalls in the Benedictine monastery church in Einsiedeln, Switzerland,[1] and for the sculptures on the altars and pulpits in the Parish Church of St. Maria in Seitenstetten, Austria.[2] He also assisted in the rebuilding of the Salem Abbey, destroyed in a fire in 1697.[3] He died in Mimmenhausen (near Salem, Bodensee.

He was the brother of Johann Michael Feuchtmayer (the Elder) and Michael Feuchtmayer (b. 1667); the father of Joseph Anton Feuchtmayer (1696–1770); the uncle of Franz Xaver Feuchtmayer (the Elder) (1705–1764) and Johann Michael Feuchtmayer (the Younger) (1709–1772); and the great-uncle of Franz Xaver Feuchtmayer (the Younger) (b. 1735).
