A Little about Myself

Lynda Minter – Artist Statement and Biography

1980 - 1983 BA Hons in Fine Art St Martin’s School of Art

 Lynda’s Landscapes and City paintings are inspired by her walks and travels.  Over the years Lynda has taken her sketchbook everywhere.  She aims to make images which have a life of their own.  Lynda does not paint pictures to a system or a formula she is striving to find a personal response by observation and drawing.  Having developed visual shorthand of mark making over the years.

Lynda is a long admirer of David Bomberg for his direct mark making, Sargent, Edward Seago, Monet and Van Gogh for his lovely colours, Oskar Kokoschka for his spontaneous brushstrokes and bright colours in his paintings of the Thames. Lynda believes it’s important to observe and learn from other artists but remain true to oneself.

 Method of working

Lynda either works directly in front of her subject or paints from sketches. She is constantly looking at ways of making her paintings more exciting which often involves overlapping patterns, shapes, and line, producing spontaneous images within each composition experiencing them together as one coherent picture.

Lynda uses different techniques, often painting over images either in acrylic or oils.  Taking risks by adding other mediums such as chalk using her fingers, end of brushes, rags, large brushes, applying expressive, spontaneous, and direct brushstrokes allowing the paint to speak for itself.   

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”

Financial Times Art critic William Packer has said: “Lynda Minter is a natural painter, her handling of paint rich and free on the surface, and impressively sure in its scope and sweep”.

Lucy Dorrien Smith, Tresco Abbey ‘I am standing in front of one of the loveliest seascapes in our collection on Tresco in the Isles of Scilly.  I am looking in awe at the colour, intensity of light, wild open skies, exciting, dramatic effects of the paint on canvas and I am thinking that this was created by a truly talented artist.  Lynda has such an intuitive understanding of our island world’.
