    Mark works with large hides sourced from around the world and hand-etches them with various knives and scalpels. The process takes huge patience and an eye for detail. Using surgical precision he carves away less than a tenth of a millimetre of leather. His incisions create different tones in the leather surface as the tanned suede beneath is gradually revealed. He calls his work "micro-sculpture" and spends months perfecting each piece.

    Mark Evans unique artwork, some costing up to £250,000, have now made the artist a target of celebrity A-listers, Premier League & International footballers and Saudi Royal Palaces.
