I studied at Edinburgh College of Art, getting an honours degree in Drawing and Painting. I learnt little about art but a lot about myself. I kept painting, indifferently at times, but my work changed when I came across the paintings of the Canadian artist Tom Thomson, one of the ‘Group of Seven’. Since then I have painted in many remote parts of Northern Scotland, always carrying boards and canvases with me, not usually sketching but doing full scale paintings.
Once back in the studio, detached from the moment, they are reworked, manipulated, altered. Sometimes even left alone. Anything to make them work. I exhibit in a small selection of galleries. The Kilmorack Gallery, Browns Fine Arts, the Rendezvous Gallery, and Panter and Hall. My principal outlet for expression is landscape, but image making is what appeals to me, so portraits and other stimuli often appear in my work.

The Life Changes Trust was established by The National Lottery Community Fund in April 2013 with a ten year endowment of £50 million to support transformational improvement in the quality of life, well-being, empowerment and inclusion of three key groups in Scotland: people living with dementia, unpaid carers of those with dementia and young people with care experience. The Trust concluded their ten year tenure in March 2022. Moniack Mhor is a formal legacy partner of the Life Changes Trust.
