“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 mindfulness.
I am a very passionate painter, and I love to experiment with colors, textures and techniques, I attended my first painting course in winter 2017-8. Currently, I am following two online courses, and this autumn I also attend an art class with a well known Norwegian painter. I always aim at creating high-quality artworks and improving my skills, especially in acrylic abstract painting and in mixed media techniques.
The sources of inspiration for my work are nature, the sea, the sky, thse Light and the music in which I find happiness and relaxation. In my paintings, I seek to transfer my inner sensations to the canvas.
While the music is playing - I surrender - and I let the brush intuitively play over the canvas - this especially when it comes to abstract painting. The result is often unique and very unexpected! My aim for my painting is to awake and to remind the observer of all the beauty in life - as well as offer moments of joy and moments to just breathe!”
