Bio
My name is Torhild Frøydis Eid. I am born i 1961 in Kristiansand, currently living in Son in the south-eastern part of Norway. I used to work as a navy officer, yet the service was getting increasingly demanding, I chose to leave. My inner voice urged me to explore and process things. As a result, I turned to painting and mindfullness.

Artist Statement
I have become a very passionate painter, and I love to experiment with colours, textures and techniques. I always aim at creating high-quality artworks and improving my skills, especially in acrylic abstract painting and in mixed media techniques. I find inspiration in my daily life and in my dreams. The animals, the sea, the sky, the Light and also the music are my sources of inspirations.
In my paintings I seek to transfer my inner sensations and what I see for "my inner eye" to the canvas. While the music is playing - I surrender and I let the brush intuitively play over the canvas - especially when it comes to non-figurative paintings. The result is often unexpected, even to myself!

My overall desire is to spread joy and good vibrations in a World in chaos and with great challenges.
I also want to
awake and to remind the observer of all the Beauty in Life. To appreciate what Life has to offer even in small everyday things. We often search for something else, somewhere else...
I want my paintings to give the observer moments of joy, just to breath, and just be here and now.

CV
I attended my first little acrylic painting course in the winter of 2017/2018. I continuously seek inspiration, knowledge,and to improve my skills. I have during the last year attended two online painting cource in different techniques.

I have just started a one year online course , "Materclass" by Ane Skilleberg. Abstract acrylic and Powertex.
