The Painting in Room 48
Heather Bowring lives in the South of England and works as a professional artist.
Her first novel was inspired by a thesis she wrote as a mature student, ‘Art as a Complementary Healer’.
She has always been fascinated with the idea that the space between a painting and a viewer is filled with their own history and wanted to develop this idea for it to play a major role in the book.
The painting in the novel is the central character that brings many disparate people together, finding friendship and love.
The story, set in a hospital, is about people finding connections with each other and the painting helps them to recognise their true selves and heals them.
No-one knows who painted Share my Dream or why it is in Room 48 until one fateful day a Polish visitor recognises it as having once belonged to her.
Heather is a member of the Society of Authors.
