William Packer - Financial Times critic 2008: "Lynda Minter is a natural painter, her handling of paint rich and free on the surface, and impressively sure in its scope and sweep. She is a Romantic and an Expressionist, her heroes natuarally such as Turner, Constable, Soutine, de Stael, Michael Andrews. Her paintings are deeply felt".
Professor Ken Howard OBE says “Painting is about the hand the heart and the head” and that’s what you get when you see one of Lynda Minter’s paintings”.
Lucy Dorrien Smith, Tresco Abbey says " I am looking in awe at the colour, intensity of light, wil open skies, exciting, dramatic effects of the paint on canvas and I am thinking that this was created by a truly talented artist".
