Helen helped with the restoration of Museum Claude Monet Giverny and founded the volunteer program some 31 years ago. Additionally, she has resided at the museum each spring sharing her passion for Monet. It was at Monet’s dining room table in Giverny where an inspired conversation about Monet's other passion “for food” gave birth to MONET’S PALATE.
