Debbie Knight, 48, from Harpenden, keeps a studio and regularly displays her own work at the Gallery 32 studio on Hatfield Road.

The mother-of-two said: “We have 20 different artists there now, who cover the gallery at the weekend.”

The gallery, which has been open since November, is part of the Vintage Emporium.

Mrs Knight said of her own painting: “I started painting again after rekindling my love for it.
