If Picasso is right, then Art and Spa surely go together. Both might add something more soulful (moist, fluid, luscious, vibrant) when we're feel worn down by life.
One of the things I love about spa as healing space is the inherent potential for creativity. It's a special quality of soul, that beauty is always bound up with feeling through experiencing.
Over the last two decades, photo-artist Linda Troeller's mission has been to convey through her work what it actually feels like to enter a spa and immerse yourself in the experience.
I first came across her work at Toskana Therme, Bad Sulza. It was a booklet about their Liquid Sound®, featuring Linda's art, that made it possible for me to convey that magical experience to my friends later.
Vision Spa Retreat is focused on all that is soulful and sustainable in spa, so I was delighted to learn more from Linda about how she came to be involved with spa art and what has inspired her in that.
I began by asking Linda how her interest in applying her photographic art in the world of spa came about.
