Biography
Torhild Frøydis Eid is born i 1961 in Kristiansand, currently living in Son in the south-eastern part of Norway.
She used to work as a navy officer, yet the service was getting increasingly demanding, she chose to leave.
Her inner voice urged her to explore and process things. As a result, she turned to beloved painting, but also to interior design and gardening, which are of great interests and good sources of inspiration.

Artist Statement
She is a very passionate painter, and she loves to experiment with colours, textures and techniques. She always aim at creating high-quality artworks and improving her skills, in acrylic painting and in mixed media techniques.

She finds inspiration in her daily life and in her dreams. She always focus on the positive, and all the beauty in life.
The animals, the sea, the sky, the mountains and the light are her main sources of inspiration.
Music and lyrics give extra spices to the creative process.

In her paintings she seeks to transfer her inner sensations and what she sees for "her 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, seeking peace and harmony in her life.

In a World in chaos and with great challenges, she hopes the Power of Art can make the World a more peaceful place. Creating unique artworks is her way of contributing. Her intention and strong desire is to remind the observer of all the beauty in life. She appreciates what life has to offer, even in small everyday things.
