Honour Mack is an Associate Professor at Maine College of Art where she has taught since 1991. She holds a Bachelor of Science from Skidmore College and a Master of Fine Arts from Yale University, where she received the Olde Holland Award for Distinction in Painting.

She had held residency fellowships at Chautauqua Institute, Vermont Studio Colony, and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, where she has also served as summer faculty.

Her one-person exhibitions include several at ICON Gallery in Brunswick, Maine and her most recent participation in "Horizons- Poetics of Post Heroic Landscape," at the galleries of both USM and UMF. She has shown extensively throughout New England and nationally and has been invited as a visiting artist at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, Mass. College of Art, University of Washington, and Yale University.

Ms. Mack writes:
"I am committed to, and passionate about, images that have been 'touched' into existence. All of my work begins with a question. The process of investigating an idea is at the core of my commitment to making art. My images are non-representational but they reference recognizable things. It is my intention to suspend a viewer of my painting in a place that is between the moment of recognizing an image and identifying that image."
