Biography/Artist Statement/CV


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 am 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, in acrylic painting and in mixed media techniques.

I find inspiration in my daily life and in my dreams. I focus on the positive, and all the beauty in life. The animals, the sea, the sky, the mountains and the light are my main sources of inspiration.
Music and lyrics give extra spices to the creative process.
In my paintings I seek to transfer my inner sensations and what I see for "my inner eye" to the canvas. Often it turns out in an unpredictable form. Introspection is also important, as a mean of revealing and restoring painful memories. As well as focusing on healing and seeking peace.

In a World in chaos and with great challenges, I hope the Power of Art can make the World a more peaceful place, and this is my way of contributing. Through my artworks I like to remind the observer of all the beauty in life. To appreciate what life has to offer, even in small everyday things. I want my artworks to give the observer moments with good vibrations, to breathe, to slow down, seek light and love, and pratice peacefullness.

CV
I attended my first acrylic painting course in the winter of 2017/2018.
I continuously seek inspiration, knowledge, and to improve my skills. I have during the last couple years attended several online painting courses in various techniques.
