Jorunn Mulen lives and works in Bergen, Norway. She graduated from Falmouth College of Art in 2005 with a Masters in Illustration and Authorial Practice. While words and narrative continue to inform her practice, Jorunn receives more recognition as a visual artist than as an illustrator.
In her own words Jorunn describes her creative approach -
"The marks on the canvas are traces from a search. Sometimes I only know what I'm looking for, when I find it. In order to find it I might have to get completely lost. Some stories evolve through recognising traces left by experience that we use to create a persona. The stories may appear in layers. There is a mixture of sincerity and imagination but also a significant truth, which allows them to evoke and intrigue the viewer"
