Matt Brown Makes
Originally from Cambridge, I graduated from Brighton College of Art & Design in ’92 with a BA(Hons) in Illustration. In my final year I specialised in three-dimensional illustration and animation, leading to a career in special effects, commercial model-making and even bespoke carpentry.I've been exhibiting my work for over 20 years and, throughout my career, have always championed the use of reclaimed and found materials - trawling though shed clearances, car boot sales, beaches and antique shops to find the perfect component for each sculpture.
What are Customers Saying
Purchased an antique fairground car for display and everything was as advertised, wasn't expecting a pizza and coffee when I came to collect it, great service!
Great piece, not only unusual but beautifuly restored! Packed and shipped well, now sitting here in sunny Australia.

Stunning handmade model of Dutch Admiralty yacht. This model was entered into the 1935 "Model engineer" exhibition. It comes with a family letter explaining more of its history and that of the model maker as was well as a framed picture and competition entry stamp.
