Zoe Finlay Paper Conservation specialises in the repair and conservation of works of art and other items on paper.Brushes I use in my studio

Whether an item requires a simple repair or a complex treatment, I apply the highest museum standard techniques and materials to return them to renewed health and appearance. As far as is possible, all conservation is reversible and is applied with minimum intervention in accordance with the Institute of Conservation ethical code of practice.

Providing professional customer care from start to finish for both you the client and your original, thorough photographic and written documentation is returned to you. Recommendations for future storage, display and handling are also provided to ensure that your item is preserved in the best possible way.

Paper items conserved include:

  • watercolours
  • drawings
  • prints, (lithographs, intaglio)
  • letters
  • pamphlets and chap books
  • maps
  • manuscripts
  • ephemera
  • book text blocks
  • posters
  • collectible graphic novels and comics
  • family documents and certificates

As well as giving details of conservation services, this website offers advice on the conservation of your paper items. If you are unable to find an answer to your question,  please contact me for further information.
