Hi, my name is Paul. Five years ago I had a hobby – manufacturing of bags and purses made of leather. One day I noticed that the leather changes color and shade, depending on the temperature, and I decided to use it in my passion – painting portraits.

It was not so easy that as I expected, so it took two years to learn how to burn out on the leather.

Burning out technique helps to keep the portrait unchanged for hundreds of years. I do not use any colors, so that water or the sun cant damage the picture.

Today it is not just a hobby. I burning out portraits for people from around the world.
