Tone Holmen was born in Tromsø, a town in Northern Norway, north of the Arctic Circle.
Her work is based on her photos of nature as well as maps which are of special interest to her.
Coming from the 'North Pole' climate change plays an important role in her work.
In 2003 Tone moved to England where she achieved a Bachelor of Honours Degree in Fine Art Painting and worked as an artist. In 2011 she moved to Skien in Norway and has in 2017 moved back to Tromsø.
