“I inherited a quite valuable painting which was in need of restoration and Angela Geary was recommended to me. Having seen the painting, Angela told me exactly what needed to be done and worked out the cost, timing etc. She was very professional and knowledgeable throughout and I had no hesitation in leaving my painting with her. She kept in touch throughout the process via e mail and the finished result was very pleasing. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to others… I have several more pictures, by the same artist for her to restore!” – Joanna Stevens, Private Collector, Somerset.
