Thank you for repairing my Shoes painting, it has made such a difference to my enjoyment of it, I can’t stop looking at it now. It will be kept safely away from sharp claws going forward. 
Thanks again.

Just a short message to let you know I am delighted with the painting, you excelled, it’s simply beautiful in every way. I am very happy with it. When my daughter saw it and I showed her the before photograph she could not believe it.

Hi Mary, so nice to meet you today, I thank you for your expert opinion and advice.
Thank you also for your honesty, you could easily have taken my painting for “ cleaning” and I would have been none the wiser, it’s refreshing to meet someone of your integrity and it restores my faith in human nature.
 Once again many thanks.
Kind regards

I just wanted to say how much we appreciate the restoration work you did for us on pieces for the exhibition “Art For Colchester” that displayed work from The Victor Batte-Lay Trust Collection. Your approach was extremely professional and the restoration invisible!

May I thank you once more for the superb work that you have done on my paintings. 
Having now had time to examine them thoroughly there is so much detail I merely have never seen or noticed before. you have given them them a new lease of life. 
I hardly remember my great aunt but I know she would have been thrilled that her work survived and has been so lovingly and beautifully restored. I cannot wait for the various serving members of my family who have known these paintings as long as I have to visit next year and see them in this new light.
I look forward to enjoying the ‘A Link With Past Ages’ canvas after you have applied your magic to it.
With all good wishes,

We are delighted with the restoration work carried out on a marine oil that fell from the wall resulting in a tear.  The mend is invisible and the overall condition of the canvas after a clean is revelatory,
I would happily recommend Mary as a restorer.

Thank you so much for Don Pedro's 're-incarnation'.  It is lovely to have him back again.  Please be assured that I will be happy to recommend your services should I be asked the question, thank you so much for the time and trouble you took over restoring him, it was lovely to have him back looking so handsome.  Hard to believe he is over 100 years old.
Should I have another painting that is in need of a little t.l.c. I will have no hesitation in contacting you again.
Sincerely,

 Valerie Sheldrake
