Helen has immense energy, collecting and advising on commissions from varying clients, historic houses to private customers. She is technically sensitive, has a great eye for colour, makes excellent ethical decisions within the conservation framework and. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a highly talented conservator and restorer."
