Charcoal drawing

5
It is incredible what Matt achieved in carrying out full conservation on my valuable (to me) charcoal drawing. Its condition could not have been worse when I took it to Matt - thin degraded paper, two tears and unstable media. It is now as fresh as when it was executed in the 1880s! Thank you very much for the painstaking conservation work delivered in reasonable time and at a very good price.
An absolute pleasure to deal with this caring professional!

Conservation of large Victorian watercolour

5
Matt was recommended to us by another conservator as we needed a Victorian watercolour conserved. The quite large & expensive painting had been quite extensively water damaged. Matt explained the process, what he could hope to achieve, timescales and cost and everything was agreed before leaving the painting with him. By this time we had absolute confidence in him and what could be done. However, on collecting the painting, the end result exceeded our expectations. It looks exactly as it did before the water damage & we are extremely pleased with the result which must have taken many hours of careful work. He had also improved the frame and sealed the glass. he provided before and after photos, so we could see the work that had been carried out. We can wholeheartedly recommend Matt. His level of expertise & knowledge are excellent. Many thanks again.

An incredible piece of work from a consummate professional

5
I asked Matt to conserve a rather beautiful water colour which was in a poor condition. The result was quite incredible. He is a real professional and the quality of his work was beyond comparison. He treated me like a friend rather than just a customer. His communications were excellent and he emailed me with a detailed breakdown of costs ,also with the treatment processes.
Thank you Matt.

Brilliant job!

5
We have a framed and glazed picture which was badly damaged by Parcelforce when we were sending it away to be donated to the RAF Museum. We asked Matt Parsons - recommended by Newcastle's Laing Gallery - if he could restore it, where the paper had been scored by broken glass. He did a fantastic job, was professional, really caring about the project, lovely to work with and very reasonably priced. We were delighted with the result, and hope the RAF will be too. Matt saved the day.
